Forfar Juniors in Sweden

We had two junior teams from Sweden at the Dumfries Junior International this weekend. At the same time, a team from Forfar Junior Curling Club, winners of the RCCC Junior Club Challenge Division 1 in January, were competing - successfully - in the Bill Ross Trophy at the Sundbyberg Curling Club in Stockholm.

Hakan Sundstrom sends these two photos and reports that Robert Fawns, Stuart Taylor, Duncan Menzies and Murray Young (skip) beat Sodertalje in the final 12-1 after taking a six-ender in the first end. The Scots are shown in the pic above (L-R: Robert, Murray, Duncan and Stuart) with the junior girls' team from Sundbyberg that won the under-17 section - Fanny Sjöberg, Jennie Wåhlin, Isabella Wranå and Elin Lövstrand.

The action picture shows Murry playing a stone, assisted by sweepers Robert Fawns and Stuart Taylor.
