Terrible news, after a fantastic run in the league section of the Allan Cup where we emerged unbeaten and top of the section the dreams were shattered on the 7th Jan 2016 by an on-form Glasgow Accies club.  The game was very close with the score after 5 ends being 3-2 to the bad guys - the hammer giving each team a point per end.  Unfortunately on the 6th end we lost a 2 against the hammer and suddently the clock was against us as it was close in determining if we had an 8th end or not.  As it turned out the 7th end was to the the final end which meant we needed a 3 to peel.  We managed to get two shots into the house but the opposition was sitting on the button and with the guards out-front we had no choice but to go for a really thin wick off one of their shots to roll onto their lying shot and push it out the house.  Sadly the final shot did not curl enough so we lost another in the final end to leave the score lying at 6-2.

 

Congratulations to Roy and his team on victory in the Autumn league.  A hard fault league this year but Roy popped out just 3 points clear of Iain Sim and his team.  Full table is available from the competitions page on the website.

It is also worth mentioning that the bonus point scheme that was introduced last year is bedding in well.  77% of the games played managed to get all eight ends in.  Special note to teams F, E and C which gained the highest bonus points of 9, 8 and 8 respectively.  Lets see if we can keep games moving along in this way during the spring league.
