Well done to our Ladies Team who reached the League Final for the first time. 

Despite holding their own in the first half, they were sadly beaten in the Final at West Lothian on Saturday 23rd March by a very strong Glasgow Team.

Our Coatbridge Ladies won every one of their league Games this year.  They followed this up with fantastic wins in the Quarter and Semi-Finals   against Midlothian and Auchinleck - both tough nail biting games!.

Many congratulations to the team for a fantastic achievement !

Our New National Senior Triples Champions 2024


Billy Cochrane  Jim Prunty Gordon Mckenzie

Congratulations to our new National Senior Triples Champions 2024!

After a very convincing semi-finals win against Teviotdale on Saturday 2nd March, the team - Gordon McKenzie, Billy Cochrane and skip Jim Prunty were back at Lanarkshire the following day to play Perth in the National Senior Triples Final.

It was a tough game throughout and the guys were down 8-11 going into the last end.

But they pulled off an amazing finish,  scoring a 4 to win 12-11.

They could have settled for playing an extra end when lying 3,  but skip Jim Prunty was determined to win and drew a 4th shot with his final bowl -   What a game!

Very well done and congratulations on winning the title - you are a credit to Coatbridge IBC!
