New date for bowlers’ county clash

Wigtownshire Bowling Association’s game with Dunbartonshire East had to be called off as the Stranraer green was under water.

The match will now be played on Friday night, and the same players should report to the Stranraer green for 6pm. Any player unable to come forward, please contact the team manager. Dress for this game only: grey trousers and white shirt. This request is so that your whites will be clean for Saturday’s game.
