This Arran pool team are a right hairy bunch – but it’s all for a good cause. The Kilmory PT 1934 players are taking part in a Movember challenge growing their beards and moustaches.

They are raising money for the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity because of the recent care given by the hospital to little Maisie Picken and other Arran children.

Her dad Jamie is one of three Picken’s are taking part in the challenge and all the boys trying to grow a beard or moustache, except Max Worthington who is progressively shaving his beard every week .

The Banner caught up with the team when they took on Brodick Golf Club’s second team – Brian’s Brodick Beaches – in the Arran Pool League last week.

Six teams are taking part in this year’s league which got underway earlier this month. The other teams taking part are: Brodick Golf Club first team, who are top of the league, Lamlash Golf Club, Whiting Bay Golf Club and Shiskine Valley, who also play at Kilmory. The games are played on a Thursday night.
