EWEN Baird led his rink to victory in the King Cup – Cardross Curling Club’s first competition of the season.

The trophy was presented to the club back in 1905 and has been played for each season since.

The format is a round robin between four teams playing each other twice, and with five wins from their six matches in the competition, Ewen’s rink finished well ahead of the other three teams.

At the end of the final match, club president Alistair MacLeod presented the trophy to Ewen and his rink of Robert Cornwell, who played third, and Esme McRae who was the team’s lead.

Jim McDonald, the second in the team, could not make the final match and is missing from the photograph.
