A very respectable season for the 2nd 16's who finished fifth in the league equal on points with Carrick Knowe. This season will certainly have been a great experience and will give the team confidence to kick on and challenge for the title next season! One of the many highlights of the season has to be Bainfield beating the Champions (Queensberry) home and away, The 2nd's can certainly look forward to next season in Division 1 and know that the league title is well within their capability.

1st 16 RESULT
Bainfield 9 - 0 Leith (81 - 49)
Maximum points for Bainfield. It was an excellent win for all four rinks coming at this crucial time of the season. Game was played with the rain coming down heavy at times making the green tricky to play.
Corstorphine losing to Goldenacre puts Bainfield up into second place in the league with a gap back to third of 4.5 points. The formula is simple now, beat Dudley away next week and Bainfield win promotion to Division 2
2nd 16 RESULT
Queensberry 4 - 5 Bainfield (53 - 65)
Excellent away win making it a great night all round for Bainfield. The 2nd's consolidate their position of third place in the league. What makes this result more remarkable is that Bainfield have now beat the champions elect twice this season! However I do believe that there was some controversy in the Queensberry team selection leading to lots of heated debate on social media! We'll leave it at that with no further comment. Well done 2nds, lets see the season out with a win next week against Tanfield at home

Stuart Clark 13 - 21 Ally McKenna (Seafield). tie played at Tramways BC
Current club champion Stuart Clark has been knocked out of the Tait Trophy at the Preliminary stage of the competition.
Stuart Clark 21 - 8 Colin Gilchrist
Congratulations to Stuart on winning his first club championship. Stuart came flying out the traps posting scores to push himself ahead early doors. Colin came back well to keep the game close. However the defining moment came when Stuart posted a four at one end to stretch his lead and he never looked back from that moment! You could see Stuart gaining in confidence, drawing well to the jack, whereas Colin wasn't looking like his normal reliable self, his running bowls not hitting the target with his usual accuracy! In the end it was a convincing win for Stuart. However I'm sure "Gilks" will come back next year all the stronger for this experience.
Stuart Clark 21 - 9 Mike Sutherland
Colin Gilchrist 21 - 10 John Milne
Two great semi finals which were closer than the scoreline suggests! Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the two worthy losers!
