Home Nations Results - Day 2 Session 2


We’re now at the halfway point of this weekend’s Home Nations at the National Centre for Bowling, Ayr with five sessions completed.

Today’s second session saw Scotland’s women take each other on, with Alloway facing Culzean in both the Women’s Singles and Fours. Dee Hoggan and Caroline Brown were tied at 15 all after 16 ends but a strong finish from Caroline saw her take the win for Culzean. The Fours was more of a one-sided affair with Claire Johnston skipping her side to a 20:10 victory for the Alloway side.

Scotland men appeared in both Triple’s and Pairs with Culzean’s teams facing Wales and Alloway playing Ireland. Jason Banks and John Fleming dominated the match going into a 17:5 lead after 11 ends against Stuart Bennett and Andy Kyle of Ireland winning 24:8. The pairs for Culzean was a different story with Ronnie Duncan and Paul Foster MBE suffering a 27:8 defeat to the Welsh pairing of Dan Salmon and Jon Tomlinson. In the Triples Culzean had a better result with Stewart Anderson, Derek Oliver and Darren Burnett, scores were level 16:16 after 16 ends but Scotland secured victory with 2 shots in each of the final two ends to beat Wales 20:16. Against Ireland, the team of Martyn Rice, Darren Weir and Iain McLean scored a 5 to bring them within one shot with two ends to play, unfortunately a 2 and a 1 then secured the win for Ireland.

Elsewhere Wales’s women faced England in Fours and Singles whilst the English men took on Ireland’s team in Pairs and Triples. The Men’s Triples between England and Ireland was a close fought game and ended in a 15 all draw.
