Matt Purdie 2018

The Matt Purdie is a competition played by eight Associations during July and August  for bowlers aged Sixty and above.  The Association over the years has steadily improved its standing in the Matt Purdie and succeeded in winning the trophy in 2016 and are in a fight to possibly qualify for the final in 2017.

The current feedback is that not all Clubs are aware of the existence of this competition or they believe the age limit starts at sixty five.

There will be a letter circulated to all Clubs to ask the Secretary to alert the members of the existence of the Matt Purdie and also with a view of seeking applicants from more members that have just reached or closer to the qualifying age of sixty.

The Matt Purdie Team will be having a trial in September. This date will be advised in the letter.

I am sure we all know players in our own Club who have just attained the age of sixty that would be worthy of a Trial.

So please spread the word.

Matt Purdie Game 5

Game 5 of the Matt Purdie Inter County Championship brought a very welcome win after 2 defeats. The team were away at Leven B.C. to play Fife B.A. Wins on 4 rinks and 1 loss gave the Matt Purdies a 86 V 46 win.

This now sets up the final game against Midlothian B.A. on Monday 14 August at Summerside as a potential Section winning game for both teams. However there is another Association still in the mix to win the section. West Lothian B.A.

So a good support on Monday 12.00 Noon at Summerside would be appreciated.
