Gowsell at Murrayfield, 1985

I was talking about the 2010 Edinburgh International Curling Championship just recently, see here.

It's a competition with a long history. In August I showed some old footage from the 1984 event (here) and I wondered if I had more. Yes, is the answer.

So this week's archive footage, from an STV broadcast, shows Canada's Paul Gowsell in action from the 1985 competition. Here's nine minutes from an early round game, the Canadian side against Peter Wilson's Stranraer team. There's a couple of classic Gowsell shots which I think you will enjoy! Brian Alderman and Iain Baxter are the commentators.
