THURSO bowling club enjoyed mixed success in the latest rounds of the Scottish District qualifiers.

Janet Sinclair and John Harris have reached the final of the mixed pairs after a close-fought win over last year’s champions, M. MacDonald and A. Adamson, from Alness.

It will be an all-Caithness final as the Thurso pair will face Wick’s St Fergus mixed pair on Sunday.

The gents’ section saw two teams progress to the semi-finals this Thursday with Douglas Fraser and Brian Cormack overcoming the Tain pairs and the senior four of Gary Henderson, Cliff Bell, John Harris and Keith Boden emulate their club-mates.

Roddy Farmer’s run in the singles came to an end when he met A. Munro, of Cromarty, and Dean McPhee lost out to the experienced Josh Sinclair, from Inverness Highland, in a close game.

The rink of Brian Mutch, Chris Rippon, Ken Rippon and Peter Dymond snr were a little unlucky in their tie against last year’s district winners from Invergordon when they made most of the running only to be pipped at the post.

The ladies made their first outing of the season on the district scene and the triple of Jillian Tewnion, Janet Sinclair and Lorna McDermid reached next week’s semi-final where they will face Invergordon. Unfortunately, the second Thurso triple of Betty MacDonald, Joan Elder and Julie Knapp fell at the first hurdle and the senior four of Marie MacKay, Maggie Paterson, Liz Rhodes and Cath Irons lost out in a close affair with Alness.

This Saturday sees the Highland Triples competition take place.

Recent helter-skelter winners were Andy MacLellan, Ross Cowan, Peter Dymond snr, John Swanson and Nancy MacAdie.
