Cambuslang Bowling Club Juniors History
....our thanks go to the Directors and Members of CBC who over the years have given their time and effort in the coaching of our Juniors. All the wonderful moments in the Juniors history and  the fine young bowlers who have come through our ranks is thanks to their dedication....

Unfortunately due to lack of numbers we currently do not have an active Junior Section 
but I'm sure you'll fine this potted history with some old photographs interesting.

Junior Champion

Our Junior Section was founded in 1981, members children aged 12 to 16 were eligible then at 16 yrs they were eligible to join the Gents or Ladies section. ( Note now 10yrs to 16yrs ) A maximum of twelve juniors was allowed.

Mr John Jack in his presidential year took the junior section on a Saturday morning, then Mr.Jim Russell and Mr. Bobby Jackson took charge. In these early days the only competition the juniors were involved in was a one day open pairs tournament at Carnwath Bowling Club and indeed we were the 1988 winners with a sisters pairs team of Christine and Marlynn Latta.

In 1986 Mr.Robert Burns became the area convenor for the SYBA ( Scottish Young Bowlers Association ) and getting ideas and better organised, trophies and cups were donated from members which allowed us to run our own club competitions.

Junior Championshiop Trophy was donated by Mr & Mrs Jim Montgomery. 
Junior Pairs Competition Shield was donated by Mr.Grant Wilson. 
Australia of our members a Mr.Jim McArthur emigrated to Australia in 1987 and he donated a cup for the juniors to play for each year. Junior member Scott Burns won the trophy on the first year.
Invitation Triples Trophy... 1989 was donated by Mr. David Dorman. This competition was kept going by Mrs Margaret Dorman who  followed in her husband's footsteps and continued to sponsor the tournament through her STRATHCLYDE FANS Company.

Unfortunately due to smaller numbers in the junior ranks these inter club competitions are no longer played. 

In 1987/1988 we won the Thornliebank League under 18 competition. Losing only one game that year our four bowlers Scott Burns, Scott Helm, Ian McNee & John MacFarlane each won a set of bowls which delighted them and their coaches, Jim Russel and Robert Burns.
