Stoneykirk take hold of the Gal­loway Cup

The Galloway News - - SPORTS -

CURL­ING The An­woth and Girthon rink of S Groom lost out in its ef­forts to win the pres­ti­gious Gal­loway Cup knock-out com­pe­ti­tion for the Ste­wartry.

Spon­sored by James Gor­don Ltd the event was won in some style by a Stoneykirk Curl­ing Club rink skipped by Ian Kirkpatric­k at Stran­raer Ice Rink.

Ian, with Alex Fer­gus­son, Adam Sharp and Brian McColm, saw off the Cas­tle Kennedy CC rink of Hugh Parker, Colin Dal­rym­ple, Rita Mitchell and Mar­garet Breadon 12-7 in the fi­nal, scor­ing two fours in the last two ends.

The Gal­loway Cup is the only com­pe­ti­tion in the curl­ing cal­en­dar that in­volve rinks from three prov­inces, the Gal­loway Prov­ince, the Rhins o’ Gal­lowa’ Prov­ince and the Ste­wartry Prov­ince.

Af­ter the fi­nal game, Gal­loway Prov­ince Pres­i­dent Drew Pa­ton asked Rhins sec­re­tary Janette Sloan to present the mag­nif­i­cent tro­phy to Ian and his rink. Both the win­ning rink and the run­ners-up re­ceived McMil­lan Ho­tel vouch­ers.

Win­ning skip Ian thanked his rink and the op­po­si­tion for the qual­ity of the curl­ing and had a spe­cial word of thanks for the James Gor­don’s who con­tinue to gen­er­ously spon­sor this com­pe­ti­tion. He also thanked the three sec­re­taries, David McMiken, Janette Sloan and Louise Kerr for or­gan­is­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

A bot­tle raf­fle to help with in­sur­ance cover for the tro­phy raised £133. Thanks to all who brought bot­tles and bought tick­ets.
