||Cambuslang BC v Halfway & District BC
On Saturday 08th July we played our annual parish match at home against Halfway BC, 2:00pm
The parish match between our two clubs is made a bit special as since
1977 the tournament has had a challenge cup - The McGinlay Trophy,
donated by the then owner of the Sun Inn Mrs Maureen McGinlay.
The President of Cambuslang in 1977 was Jim Montgomery Sen and the
Halfway BC President was Jackie Fergus. Both clubs have competed for
the trophy ever since with the format of 2 pts a win.
This year the winners were Halfway B.C. The shots totals were Cambuslang 81 v Halfway 95.
