Curling: Double delight for Bute pair

Andy Eccles and Donald Kinnear enjoyed two successful days in a row on the ice as Bute Curlilng Club’s 2013 programme gathered pace.

Andy and Donald were joined by Jan Eccles and Beck Reid as Bute defeated Irvine Ladies 9-2 in the Ayr Day League, and the following day the duo, this time joined by Margaret MacLeod, shrugged off the handicap of being the only three-handed rink to win the club competition for the Clydesdale Bank Trophy at the Waterfront in Greenock.

Fifteen Bute players took part in the latter competition - for a full report see this week’s issue of The Buteman, on sale from Thursday, January 24.
