Scottish Junior Curling Club Challenge Winners
Congratulations to Stranraer who in a tight competition won Division 1 by two ends to claim the Challenge Trophy. What’s great about this result is that Stranraer were only promoted to Division 1 on Wednesday afternoon due to the late withdrawal of the Galleon teams, who couldn’t travel due to the storms on Tuesday. Ian Kirkpatrick skipped one team which included Bobby Lammie, Jodie Milroy and Euan Kyle, and Vicky Wright skipped the other team of Gregor Cannon, Callum Lammie and Alison Fyfe.
Hamilton finished second, while Stirling and Dumfries were relegated to Division 2 after finishing in the bottom two.
In Division 2 Greenacres topped the table with Gogar Park 2 finishing second and are promoted to Division 1. Perth dropped to Division 3 after finishing bottom of the table.
Division 3 play-offs take place at Dumfries Ice Rink on February 25-26.
