Uplawmoor Curling Club
The history of the Ouplaymoor Trophy
In season 1992/93 the club decided to have two league competitions, one played from September to December and the other from January to April.
Up till then the league teams were picked in September and played together right through till the following April competing for the Leggat Salver.
However running two league competitions meant that the club now needed another trophy, and the Ouplaymoor Trophy came into being.
It was decided that the Leggat Salver would be competed for in the second half of the season, and that teams would play for the Ouplaymoor Trophy, formerly the NAEL Bonspiel Cup over the Autumn.
The first winners were Stuart Kennedy, Grant McGregor, David Boag and Paul Harris, with Lynda McKenzie, Tony Tierney, Bridgett Lawless and Helen Low winning the following season 93/94.
Interestingly, it was Tony Tierney who had presented the NAEL trophy to the club when he worked with the Nationwide & Anglia Building Society Ltd.
However there was a strong feeling in the Club that the new league deserved a new trophy, and the very elegant Ouplaymoor Trophy took its rightful place in the club’s trophy cabinet.
Tony Tierney went on to win the Ouplaymoor Trophy on three occasions between 2001 and 2015.
But Tony's close friend and arch-rival on the ice, Stuart Kennedy holds the record by winning the trophy six times between 1992 when it was first played for and 2013.
