Bute Curling Club’s latest Greenock Day League fixture ended in a disappointing 12-6 defeat at the hands of Gourock 1.

Colin Sharp (skip), Donnie MacLeod, Helen Hay and Bill Stein were left facing an uphill task when Gourock took six shots in only the second end - and though Bute hit back in the fourth end to close the gap between the teams to two shots, Gourock picked up five shots to Bute’s one over the final four ends.

Next up for Bute’s curlers is an Argyll Province tournament and a club competition for the Bank of Scotland Trophy.
