The winners of the KBA Cup played tonight (29thMay) were Auchencairn,

They beat Creetown 68 shots to 54.


Scott McCubbin & John Hunter 16  v  Stuart McClymont & Eddie McCulloch 13

The 2 Bowl Pairs was a close game tied 3 all after 5 ends, after 10 ends Auchencairn had a slight advantage at 8-5,Creetown then had a run of winning ends and by the 18th end lead by 12-11 but a 5 & 2 in the last 3 ends was enough to give Scott & John victory by 16-13.


J  McGarrie, Stuart Crossan & Andrew Shanks 7  v  I Carter, William Lindsay & Alan Johnston 13. The triples was a low scoring game with 11 of the 15 ends being won by a single shot. Creetown had the better start and lead 7-1 after5 ends, after 10ends it was 10-4 and finished 13-7 to Creetown.


Joe Caldow & Andy Briggs 27  v  Alan McClymont & Eric Houston 12

The 4 Bowl pairs was a good game to watch with lots of good heads and bowls. Alan & Eric will still be wondering what went wrong. After 5 ends Auchencairn lead 9-4, Auchencairn won 10 shots in 3 ends and after 10 ends they had stretched it to 19-8 and by 15 it was 26-9 and the game finished 27-12.


Laurie Little, Stuart Gilliland, Bert Little & Billy Malcolmson 18    v  Alastair Herries, Jim Maginess, Colin Moffat & Roy Wilkinson 16.

The Fours was another close game, Creetown lead 6-3 after 5 ends but by 10 ends Auchencairn had got in front and lead 12-9, by 15 ends it was 17-16 to Auchencairn. A single in the next end to Auchencairn was enough for Auchencairn to win the KBA Cup so the last end was conceded in favour of some hospitality and getting out of the cold.


Stewartry Vice President Scott Davies presented the KBA Cup to Auchencairn President Scott McCubbin and thanked Umpire William Thomson and Auchencairn for hosting the final.
