Jan Eccles led her rink to victory in Bute Curling Club’s Bank of Scotland Trophy competition this week.

Three rinks took part in the competition, and all finished the round-robin format with a record of one win and one defeat, meaning the fate of the trophy would be decided on the basis of each rink’s shots for and against.

Jan, along with Peter Martin, Margaret MacLeod and Ron Forrester, had a record of +8 shots from their two games, while Colin Sharp (skip), Andy Eccles and Nancy Kinnear finished on +1 and Donld Kinnear (skip), Alec Robertson, Bill Stein and Dougie Menzies with -4.
