Scottish 'Cap'

Among the many trophies and achievements by the club one honour stands out, that of the Scottish 'Cap' awarded to one of Aberlady BCs most talented players, Jock Cunningham.

In 2014 Joy McLeod won the Ladies Scottish Senior Singles title for East Lothian which qualified her to play in the Scottish Championships at Ayr.

There, on her debut in the competition, she put up a commendable fight to only lose 21-14 in the first round.

British Pairs 1988

Winning the Scottish Pairs title in 1987 was a fitting tribute to the careers of Jock Brodie and Jackie Greenwood but a year later they topped this achievement by lifting the British Pairs Title in Wales.

The timing of the win could not have been planned better as it happened in the centenary year when much celebration was already taking place. During that year Aberlady played many games against invited teams including a team from the Scottish Bowling Association ( SBA ). Due to the extra games the green was full most nights of the season.

SBA Triples 2000

2000 was another high point for Aberlady Bowling Club when the triple of Jim Florence, Bill Dunleavey and 'Cha' Greenwood won the Scottish Triples at Ayr. Sadly the politics of the game stopped them following this with an appearance in The British Championships, when the Scottish Bowling Association withdrew all their representatives from the event. They did however qualify again for the Scottish Triples at Ayr in 2001 where they were unsuccessful in their bid to retain the trophy.

SBA Senior Fours Winners

Another Major trophy won by the club is The Scottish Senior Fours title won by Davie Balfour, George Marshall, Jock Brodie and Jackie Greenwood in 2004.

As well as these successes Aberlady Bowling Club has supplied players for the East Lothian county team, as well as having one player ( Jock Cunningham ) selected to play for Scotland.
