William is playing lead in Alex Dickson’s team Tiree. He has taken to touring very well and is the strong, silent type. The ‘quiet man’ of the team, he is always where the action is, taking note of what is going on, keeping council and generally being a right good guy. He was suspected of being a deep cover mole for the judge but has lately attracted a number if infractions, so possibly not.
“I’m 59 and farm Barr of Spottes Farm, Castle Douglas, which is in South-West Scotland.My family is Christine my wife, daughters Lindsay, Kirsty and Fiona, and grandson Jay who is six years old.
My home Club is Kirkpatrick-Durham, instituted in 1831. We curl at Dumfries Ice Bowl. I am in my sixth year as President of my Club, and recently completed my two-year term as President of Stewartry Province. I’m proud to have won the Stewartry Province ‘Vale of Urr’ trophy twice, and also the inter county Stewartry v Dumfriesshire ‘Craigielands’ trophy.
On tour I’m most looking forward to curling against fellow-curlers from USA, and seeing a country I haven’t visited before.
I enjoy watching football, both by being at games and on TV, and travelling to parts of the world I haven’t been to before.”
