The Tuesday night Greenock and District League started with a new format. This year Ardgowan has three teams competing, the team 1 (6 rinks) will challenge for the Championship, the other two teams, each made up of three triples will compete for the triples league.

Only team 1 had a game on Tuesday night, and although the weather saw the postponement of the tie at Victoria, the games are Ardgowan were played with Victoria gaining 4 pts against Ardgowan’s 2 pts.

Congratulations to Douglas Barr and Allan Walker who have both been selected to represent Renfrewshire South in this year’s County Championship. The team’s first game is on Saturday at Ardgowan against Ayr County.
