Twenty one youngsters took part in the U17 Grampian Junior Bowling Association Championships earlier this month.

The event was held at last year’s winner Alan Anderson’s home club of Tarland. Alan completed a clean sweep of all the trophies in 2011.

This year Andrew Gregor of Woodend Bowling Club claimed first prize with Insch’s Jamie Hoper finishing as runner-up.

There was a tense finale to the U13 competition where five children played off to decide the winner.

It was eventually Whitehall’s Emma Reid who was victorious with Andrew Thomson of Inverurie in second place.

Tarland Bowling Club and Aboyne Highland Games were the main sponsors of the event with prize money sponsored by Aberdeen Web Lifting Equipment.
