Team Kinnear Wins Asham Under 17 Slam, Lockerbie
The first of the Asham Under 17 Slam events kicked off this weekend with The Stevenson Trophy at Lockerbie. 22 teams from as far afield as Elgin and Aberdeen played in different sections to reach the qualifying stages on Sunday.
Great play and sportsmanship was shown throughout the weekend with quite a buzz being created by families and followers, many who came in support of a local team of some 11 year olds, who recorded a win in one of their games.
A Perth team skipped by Callum Kinnear, with local player Ryan McCormack, Duncan McFadzean and Matthew McKenzie, won the High Road final, taking the The Stevenson Trophy, beating the Stirling team skipped by Lisa Davie. A team from Stranraer skipped by Andrew Gilmore won the Low Road final, beating a Dumfries team skipped by Finlay Howat. Some fun was had in an additional singles competition with Angus Bryce emerging the winner and Robbie McCormack as runner up.
Marion Murdoch presided over the prize giving and was delighted to invite Marion Fraser, RCCC Ladies President to present the High Road winners prizes and Michael Stevenson, chairman of the Board of Directors at Lockerbie Ice Rink handing over the family trophy. Thanks are also due to chief umpire Jim Hogg for keeping everything running smoothly ensuring a very successful weekend.
