Forty-two players entered the Davie Cooper Memorial Singles Cup, one down on last year. The event raised over £800 for the RNLI and Fishermen's Mission.
Only three ladies entered two going out in the first round but Liz Irvine had a good day getting to the quarter-finals before being beaten by Robbie Stanger. But in turn, he got to the semi-finals where Kevin Gray put him out with a 88.4 average.
The other semi-final was a repeat of last year’s final between Stevie Linklater and Ivan Leslie, which Stevie won, but not this time as Ivan made the final. However, with Kevin on top form Ivan lost three-nil.
The next big game is the Jim Scollie Masters next Friday in the Legion. It’s a ranking points event and with the points very close a big entry is expected.
