A former Arbroath man is part of an Australian team which has been crowned national men’s curling champions Down Under.

Duncan Clark, who was born in the town, but now lives in Canberra, is part of Team Millikin, based in Sydney.

And at the weekend they took the crown at the championship, which were being held in Dunedin, New Zealand, as Australian ice is more geared towards ice hockey.

Duncan, son of Bob and Linda Clark, Millfield Road, took up curling aged nine at Letham Grange Young Curlers.

He joined up with the Edwards Rink from Lockerbie winning tournaments.

Duncan moved to Australia after meeting Amanda, now his wife while she was working in Scotland. They have a daughter, Abbey, aged five, and a two-year-old son, Harry.

The team will now represent Australia at the Pacific Asia Curling Championships in Shanghai, China, in November.
