Monymusk Boules Tournament


A team from Collieston Boules Club – the Creoles – won the first ever Monymusk Boules Masters tournament held in the historic Aberdeenshire village on Saturday (June 8).

The tournament, which raised money for local charity and is scheduled to become an annual event, attracted 30 teams. The Creoles – Jack Page (skip), Ken Ingram, Bryce Thomson and Alan White – won six matches in a row to reach the final which saw them beat local team the Boule Dozers.

Collieston Boules Club was well represented at the day-long event with four teams taking part (the Forvie Folkies – Elizabeth Hay, Ellie Ingram, Alison Allan and Charles Esson – came fourth).

The Masters trophy, which is retained at the Grant Arms Hotel in Monymusk, was presented to the Creoles by Lady Grant of Monymusk.Image
