Season 2008

A Summary of the 2008 season

This was generally a good season in the playing sense despite the poor weather in the later part of the season.  Our representives in the Glasgow and Scottish championships did not get very far, although David Macdonald and Bill Taylor reached the SBA district final in the Pairs and Ken Carlin lost narrowly in the Junior district semi-final.

In the GBA competitions, rinks from the club reached the semi-finals of the Centenary, Charity and Coronation cups. The rink of Peter Peebles, Gillies Lang, Alistair Gunn and Gordon Smith went on to win the Coronation Cup for the first time in the Club's history.

In the Kelvin Allander League we ended up in our usual mid table position, but we did win the Senior  section of the Kelvin Allander League comfortably.

The Glasgow League teams found it difficult to win away from home, and were relegated to Division 3.

A very successful  Open triples Competition was held in July thanks to the efforts of Arthur Dalley in chasing up entries and sponsorship. The winning triple, somewhat unusually, was one of our own teams, consisting of David Winks, Jim Macphie and Tom Hamilton.

Finals day at the end of August saw our youngest ever Champion, with 17 year old Kenneth Carlin defeating Jim Macphie. So much for an "old man's game"!

In the President's trophy, David Linley defeated Gerry Carter.
