This report from Andrew Kerr.
After 5 years we thought it was about time that we let Renfrewshire XII Province see what the Harry Hart Trophy looks like!
Three rinks from Ayrshire made their way to Greenacres on the 9th February to defend the Trophy which was originally presented by the boat hirer on Largs seafront - one Harry Hart.
Ian Alexander's Dalmellington rink were the current holders and took on a rink from the Alternative Club. Things didn't go too well for Ian's rink of Rob White, Sandy Frew and Dave McIntyre and they finished on the wrong end of a 7-3 score line.
Andrew Kerr's Troon Portland rink of Aileen McCorkell, Derek Gilbertson and Alison Young had a tight game against Between the Sheets winning 5 ends to 2 but, in what counts, losing by 6-5.
The third Ayrshire Province rink saw Neil Beattie, Charlie Steele, Euan Lawrence and Ronnie Wilson playing under the Rotary banner take on the might of the Reform Club. Another tight game with the Ayrshire men 5-4 up going into the last end but giving up a 3 to ensure that Renfrewshire XII Province achieved a clean sweep.
Good games and good company and we'll just have to reclaim the trophy next year !
