More catching up

Right, here are a few tales from furth of Perth to catch up just a little on what else has been happening around the country.

Hugh Neilson's Avondale Heather team won the Royal Club's Rink Championship on Sunday, see here.

The Borders won the Morton Trophy beating Braehead in two of the three matches, see here.

And at Curl-Aberdeen...

Congratulations to the winners of the U-13 Funspiel. L-R: Ashleigh Street, Ross Whyte (skip), Scott Oliver and Sean Milligan from Dumfries. Also in the photos is Jim Conn, the chairman of SALSC (Scottish Association of Local Sports Councils).

The U-15 competition was won by the Lanarkshire team. L-R: Heather MacDonald, Carolyn Baird, Jim Conn, Andrew Neilson (skip) and Connor Ballantyne.

At Braehead:

Now for something older, with apologies to the Charles Jackson team above!

Charles Jackson and his team were the winners of the Robin Brechin trophy at Braehead. Sixteen teams took part in this competition which runs alongside the Allcomers trophy. Would you believe that this was the centenary of the Allcomers - the trophy was first presented at Crossmyloof ice rink in 1911.

Here are the winners:
L-R: Angela Higson, Bill Masterton, Jim Taylor, Rosemary Lenton

Virtual Bonspiel report to come.
