Team Scottish War Blinded visit Abbeyview Bowling Club

Posted: 18/05/2015 | Scottish War Blinded

Team Scottish War Blinded visited Abbeyview Bowling Club for the third match of the charity’s centenary bowling tour on Thursday 14 May 2015.

Members Peter Clueness and Jim Stevenson were warmly welcomed for their first matches of the tour. They were joined by team captain Ian Graham and Scottish War Blinded’s own Gary Seath who stepped in at the last moment.

Members appreciated the comparatively humid conditions at Abbeyview Bowling Club compared to their previous matches in Aberdeen and Dundee. The green was also a hive of activity with a number of regional matches also taking place.

Both teams eased themselves into the match and Scottish War Blinded took an early lead as a result of some inspired play. Abbeyview gradually worked their way back into the match with a series of decisive deliveries.

The match hung in the balance until the ninth end when Abbeyview successfully secured six shots to establish a seven point lead. Despite Scottish War Blinded’s best efforts, the lead provided unassailable and Abbeyview won the match 20-9.

Members were treated to wonderful hospitality from Abbeyview Bowling Club after the match where a humorous inquest was held with regards to the now infamous ninth end as well as thoughts on forthcoming matches for both teams.

Scottish War Blinded members Peter Clueness and James Stevenson said:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the day, the company has been good and we have been made to feel exceptionally welcome here at Abbeyview Bowling Club.”

“I’ve had a very good days bowling and hopefully the tour can raise awareness of Scottish War Blinded and develop friendships with the wider bowling community.”

We thank Abbeyview Bowling Club for hosting Scottish War Blinded’s centenary tour match.
