Welcome to the Juniors Section

19th JUNE  2015


Brunstane Primary 7 pupils came to the club for 5 Wednesday mornings in May / June. 18 pupils were awarded Basic Skills certificates by Lady President Margaret Butters.


Once again this year a joint Portobello / Brunstane team is playing in the Edinburgh Junior Bowling League. Our Brunstane Triple has had convincing victories against both CarrickKnowe and Sighthill and have every chance of progressing through the knock out competitions.


The current Junior Champion is Paul Lawson,but he is now a senior so we will have a new Champion this year to go forward to the Junior Champion of Champions competition.
