Curlers Resurrected

A TEAM of former European Championship curlers from Stranraer has been resurrected to represent a 'rest of the world' select against North America.

Hammy McMillan will take his team, made up of Stranraer men Roger McIntyre, Norman Brown and Hugh Aitken all of whom are previous Euro-pean champions to next month's inaugural Continental Cup in Regina, Canada.

And although the four have never won an international honour together, five-times European champion Hammy is confident that they have the experience to make their mark on the tournament which he describes as curling's version of golf's Ryder Cup.

Hammy, who was furious after being dropped from Team McMillan who represented Britain at this year's Winter Olympics, said in March he was going to concentrate on building a team around local players whom he could trust.

Now he has done just that. Looking forward to the new three-day tournament which begins on 7th November, Hammy said

"It is an honour to be asked to skip this team in the first-ever Continental Cup".
