BOWLERS turned out in large numbers for a tournament staged in memory of two beloved brothers.

Players from across Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and beyond headed to Lochwinnoch Bowling Club to compete for the Davis Memorial Trophy.

This was the third year the village club has hosted the event, which pays tribute to Lochwinnoch siblings George and Lennox Davis, who both lost brave battles against cancer.

Following their deaths, officials at the club decided to rename the historic Milk Cup after them.

And matches were keenly contested at this year’s tournament.

Fittingly, after a day of terrific sporting action in the fours competition, it was Lochwinnoch who won the trophy, with the impressive quartet of Gerrard McCoy, Paul Browning, Ross Browning and Bud Wilson securing victory for the hosts.

Vincent Spalding, Lochwinnoch’s club president, described the event as a wonderful success.

He said: “The day went really well and the weather was okay for us.

“Three of the guys who won the event were quite close to the two brothers who passed away, so it was nice for them.

“It was really great for the club to win the trophy, after having not done so for a number of years.”
