The Stirling team has won the championship of the first division of the SBU West District league!!!
To add to that, they were also the beaten finalists in the handicap knock-out organised by the West District league. It is a major achievement to win this league which, along with the East District equivalent, is the toughest league in Scottish bridge. Stirling also won it 3 years ago, but, prior to that, the last time it was won by Stirling was in 1981. The team panel contains more club regulars than you might think. Few are at the club every week, but at least 13 come fairly frequently. In last year’s matches, these ‘regulars’ played a high proportion of matches. Grant Harrower is also joining the panel this year, playing with Ian Hunter. We do have a small number of the top class Edinburgh players, and think it adds to everyone’s enjoyment scoring up with these people. The picture shows captain, Harry Smith, with the league trophy.
