LUNDIN Bowling Club’s junior section is continuing to prove a great success.

The group, which began in late May, has attracted a large number of youngsters to the club.

Currently, the section meets after school on Monday afternoons, with the total number having joined now at 35.

The team recently took take part in an open day at Duffus Park Bowling Club - a big day for the youngsters, as it was their first away fixture.

The players acquitted themselves well and won several prizes.

The local Guide association has also taken a keen interest in the group, with some 38 Brownies visiting to try their hand at bowls.

This was followed by a visit from the Guides and these evenings have led to a further 10 members joining the club.

To mark the recent closing of the green, a game was held between the juniors and their parents, with the juniors coming out on top.

Despite the onset of autumn and the closing of the green for its winter rest, which means the group can no longer play outdoors, they will continue every week with indoor bowls.

Secretary David Pirie said: “Any young person aged five or over is very welcome and transport is laid on to take the children from Kirkton of Largo Primary School to the club.

“The venture has proved to be very good for the club in introducing new young faces to the sport and it also offers the youngsters a healthy way of getting exercise in a friendly environment.”
