Team Davie Success in European Junior Champions Tour Event

Team Davie has built on the excellent start that they have made to the new season - they won the Greenacres Under-21 Slam event back at the end of September and, as a result, won a trip to the Nordic Junior Curling Tour Copenhagen leg at the end of November.  C&B's own Kirsty Barr and Emma Barr are members of the team.

In the meantime though, they have won the European Junior Champions Tour event at the Braehead rink through in Glasgow.  This sets them up nicely for the upcoming Scottish Junior Curling Championships early in 2019.

The Braehead competition was truly international.  Team Davie managed a great win against Team Tanner from Switzerland (I suspect that I played against their father and grandfather in the 1970s!), team Bryce in the semi-final and then the team skipped by Maria Hamre Ramsfjell (and again, I suspect I played against Ramsfjell senior in various competitions throughout the seventies and eighties).

A fantastic performance by the team and their coach, our own Andrew Barr.
