Andy Cooper (right), Presidents Shield Winner
2019 - Presented by David Armstrong

 

Presidents Shield

"On the occassion the Club’s 175th Anniversary Dinner, Provost William Petrie of Dumbarton District Council presented a shield bearing the Dumbarton Coat of Arms to James Hutton, President of Dumbarton Curling Club.

Some 70 members of the Club along with wives, friends and guests attended the dinner, which was held in the Dumbuck Hotel, Dumbarton on 9th November 1990."

"The Club’s Committee decided that the shield would be contested by all players, and would be awarded to player considered to be the most consistent throughout the season."

The above extracts are taken from the club's minute book detailing 1) the presentation of the Shield; and 2) the conditions on which the winner would be decided.  The Shield was first awarded at the end of the 1991-92, with Alan Gault being considered to be the most consistent player of the season, and thereby the inaugural recipient of the Shield.

In recent years the criteria for winning the Presidents Shield has been extended, and the Shield can be awarded by the President based on any of the following:

1. The most consistent player;
2. The most improved player;
3. Most contribution to the club;
