Ayr wins back Willie Johnstone Trophy

Two teams from Ayr played at Hamilton yesterday in the Willie Johnstone Trophy. Hamilton had triumphed at Ayr 12 months ago so there was a need to play well and bring the trophy back to Ayr.

The games didn't get off to the best of starts. On sheet D Jim Boswell, Charlie Steele, Euan Lawrence and Neil Beattie lost a two at the first end. They looked over at Sheet C for some comfort. but saw that Ronnie Peat and his team of Robert Boyd, Peter Galloway and Jim Dunlop had started by losing a 6! (Please don't ask!)

However, things looked up from then on. Ronnie and his team fought back well enough to be 9-7 up after 7 ends, but lost a two to finish tied 9 all.

Jim and his team (pictured above) scored a four at the second and only lost two more shots, winning by a comfortable 15 shots to 4.

The day finished with some excellent food and some entertaining stories in the bar.
