Perth curlers defeat Olympic champions to win prestigious title in Canada

Perth curlers have capped a superb run of performances by winning a prestigious title in Canada.

Robin Brydone and Duncan McFadzean, who play for Team Whyte alongside captain Ross Whyte and Euan Kyle, took victory at the AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic.

They had reached a third final in a row and, having lost the previous two to fellow Scots Team Mouat, were even more determined to get the job done.

In Ontario, the Olympic champion team Edin stood in the way of obtaining the trophy.

It was a close battle from start to finish, but Team Whyte pulled out a 7-6 victory after an extra end.

“It’s been a great start to the season,” said Brydone, a former Perth High student.

“If you had told us we would have made three finals, won a title and made another semi-final in our three events so far, we would have bitten your hand.

“However, early season success means nothing unless we can move on and start going deeper into Grand Slams.
