Stuart thanked the opposing teams for a match played in a convivial atmosphere and all enjoyed an excellent post-match meal.

We should also say special thanks to Lynn & Clarkston for updating the base of the cup by adding a new silver band for engraving.

The match with Clarkston Curling Club (later to become Lynn and Clarkston) commenced in season 1974/75. In that year, when he was Giffnock President, Wilson James and his friend Ian Morton very kindly presented a trophy for annual competition – known as the Morton James Cup.

Full teams were S Pollok with S Malloy, E McMorris and J Couper; and A Marshall with S Halliday, R Logan and S Daye.
