Happy return for curlers

Stirling Wheelchair Curling Club went one better in a competition held at the Peak.
Stirling Wheelchair Curling Club took on rinks from Braehead, Kinross, Lanarkshire, Lockerbie in the Friendship Trophy – a competition in which they shared the spoils last year.

The final matches, both pairs games, saw The Peak’s Brian Smith and Debbie McKenna, who was playing superbly in her first season, pitched against the experienced David Wightman and Paul Webster.

In an exciting game with the advantage swaying between the teams, The Peak pulled ahead by scoring a four at the fourth end, and stealing a single at the fifth end to take an 8–5 lead going into the last end.

Lanarkshire played a very good last end and managed to score three shots to record a peel. In the other match Angie Malone and Neil Hogg proved too strong a combination for Lanarkshire’s Arthur Bell and Eddie Fleming. The Peak therefore won outright to retain the Friendship Trophy to the delight of players and supporters.

Scottish Wheelchair Curling Association vice-chairman Rosemary Lenton said “Thanks to The Peak and their staff for providing excellent ice conditions for our competition. Also, without our on-ice helpers ,the competition wouldn’t have been the success it was”.

Active Stirling Ice Sports Development Officer, Logan Gray said, “For a club formed just a few years ago, to share the trophy last year and win it outright this year is a great achievement.”
