The New Year 2004 Men's Ba' was thrown up by Billy Jolly (Doonie winner New Year 1979) and won by Uppie Gordon Mulraine.
to 13:14 Billy made a fine throw into a large scrum which
soon fetched up against the Kirk Green wall. After the centre
collapsed and a spin across to the Town Hall, the Ba' returned
to the Kirk Green wall where the Doonies had several strong
attempts to push towards the sea, but were always thwarted
by the Uppies.
