Stranraer’s top teenage curler Bobby Lammie ended the domestic curling season on a high by retaining his Scottish mixed title at Curl Aberdeen last weekend, as second player in Team Bryce.

Eighteen-year-old Bobby has already bagged the Scottish and World Junior titles this season to establish himself as one of the best junior players in the world.

The team - Cameron Bryce, Katie Murray, Bobby and Sophie Jackson beat six other mixed team to the Scottish title.

The final draw from the round-robin saw a previously undefeated Team Fraser Duncan Menzies, Rowena Kerr, Blair Fraser and Abi Brown from Stoneykirk, lose to Team Bryce 9-7, however due to their previous results they had already been guaranteed a spot in the final. The results from the session left the two teams finishing on five wins and one loss.

The final was a rematch of the final round robin session. Team Fraser had a strong start, stealing a one in the first and forcing one in the second. However Team Bryce came back fighting, scoring in four consecutive ends, with the score 7-1 after five ends. Team Fraser looked like they might manage a come-back after scoring three in the sixth, but then Bryce matched that in the seventh and handshakes were offered with the final score 10-4.

The winners will now head east to Kazan in Russia for the World Mixed Championships in October.
