BOWLS: Bushmills and District 2023 Juniors, League and Club of the Year awards

The Bushmills and District bowling league started their competitions off with the Over 50’s pairs and finished at the other end of the scale with the League’s Juniors singles at Kilraughts recently.

This played off to a final between Kilraughts’ Reuben Kelly and Emma Pinkerton. With the lead changing throughout the game, it was Reuben who claimed the Junior title in the final end and the League’s Stirling Shield.

A league spokesperson said: “It is good for clubs to have younger players coming in, as these are the future of the club and also it does help to lower the average age of the club, potentially making that club the youngest club in the League. "

The Bushmills and District League Championship Winner 2023 was Trinity, awarded the Northern Bank Cup, with Armoy claiming the runner-up William Craig Cup. The Club of the Year title, where the clubs are compared to their last three years, also went to Trinity with 299% and Dunluce Parish with 181%.
