Northfield  2012

The record books were updated at Dalzell Bowling Club when John Simpson became their first member to win a bronze medal at the Bowls Scotland National Singles Finals at Northfield, Ayr on Sunday 29th July 2012.

John was beaten 21 – 20 in the semi-final by the eventual champion Alastair White ( Kelso).

Reaching Northfield is a highlight of any bowler’s season and Lanarkshire North West (District 25) is recognised as one of the most competitive in the country from which to qualify.

John was quick to recognise this and paid tribute to the high standard of competition afforded both at Dalzell and throughout the District.

“We have been fortunate to have had a number of Club members reaching Northfield in recent years and all should be proud of getting there. It speaks volumes for the high standard we try to maintain at Dalzell. Let’s hope we can do even better in the future.” he said.

John would like to thank everyone who came to Northfield and for all who sent messages of support.
