A look back at a big year of sport
Part 1 – January to June
Arran enjoyed a big year of sport in 2018 and here we look back at just some of the achievements of the first six months.
Sporting heroes young and old made their mark in sports from triathlon to hockey, rowing, bowls – the list goes on and it was good to see a reformed Isle of Arran Rugby Club back on the pitch, even if it was for one day only.
JANUARY – Joining students from all over Scotland, Nastassja Alberti and Patryk Gwizdowski, both of Whiting Bay, received their black belt grading after a rigorous assessment at Dalkeith.
JANUARY – All island clubs were represented at the traditional Boxing Day bowling at Shiskine Bowling Club which 10 hardy bowlers attended.
FEBRUARY – Wullie Stevenson of Whiting Bay was elected to represent Arran and Kintyre in the Scottish National Sheep Dog Trials in Kintyre. Pictured here are Wullie and Maid before the final.
