Some catching up to do in the Aikman Cup where the updates have been delayed thanks to some missing scorecards. One game score remains unconfirmed but the others are up to date and available here.
Congratulations to our first comnpetition winners of the season, Jim Stirling's Gold Medal winning side of Stephen Hall, Drew Cameron and Diane Warnock. They defeated Alan Hall's team 7-5 in Monday's final.
With the Aikman Cup round robin now at the half way stage and every team having played each other once, Kevin Keenan's side leads the way with 6 points, one ahead of David Hall and Isabelle Tait.
Robert Kirkland's side defeated Donald Burns in the last remaining Gold Medal match on Monday. The final standings can be found here and, as mentioned before, the final takes place this coming Monday at 5.45.
Jim Stirling and Alan Hall were the winners in Monday's decisive Gold Medal matches, Jim's win over Arthur Devine consigning Arthur's side to third place at best. Although one round robin game remains, neither Robert Kirkland nor Donald Burns can now catch the top two so Jim will meet Alan in the final on Monday 3rd December.
More scores for both the Gold Medal and the Aikman Cup. With all teams having one match remaining in the Gold Medal, 5 of the 6 sides can still make the final. Although Arthur Devine and Jim Stirling are out in front, they play their final game against each other on Monday 19th and that could open the door for one of the 3 sides on 4 points. Alan Hall leads the chasing pack having won more ends than the others on 4 points.
Some score updates for you - the Gold Medal is progressing with all six teams havuing played at least 2 games now, all still have a chance of making the final. Meanwhile the Aikman Cup is also underway now. All the updated scores and standings can be found here.
