Perth U-17

Here's a few photos to give you a flavour of the Perth Under-17 event at the Dewar's Centre today and tomorrow. That's Andrew Neilson, above.

Andrew is playing with Graeme Allan, Mark Guthrie and Laura Ritchie. That's Laura and Mark the sweepers above, on Andrew's stone.

Lesley Young's stone, Beth Dandie and Hayley Duff are the sweepers. Louise Joiner is in the head.

This is the Scott Wilson team from Stranraer. Scott's stone, Neil Topping and Euan Kyle are the sweepers. Calum Lammie is in the head.

I don't think that Scott was too happy with the way he played this one!

Stuart Taylor was skipping this Forfar team today. That's Craig Joiner who has delivered, with Euan MacDiarmid and Ewan Maguire sweeping. Stuart is in the head.

Here's another Stranraer team. Gregor Cannon is the skip. That's his stone with Mark Munro and Connor Ballantyne ready to sweep. Bobby Lammie is in the head.

"So Bobby, what do you think?"

Luke Carson. Skip Cottage likes the coloured wristbands. At my age something like this would help me remember which hand is which!

Scott Gibson skipped the Luke Carson team today. He's seventeen already so is not eligible to play the remaining slams for this season. Luke, George Ballantyne and Jay Wilson agreed Scott should skip since it's his last competition. Imagine, too old at 17! (Iain Waddell is the one missing from the Lanarkshire lineup for this competition)

Here's Scott up against James Carswell this morning. James has George McConnell, Ben Bremner and Peter Dagen.

Robin Brydone, playing with James Hay, Callum Kinnear and Kerr Sands.

That's James in the head for Robin's stones. Sophie Jackson and Katie Murray are behind. Katie's front end are Gayle Allan and Kirsty Morton.

Callum and Kerr hard at work!

Jodie Milroy skipped the third of three Stranraer teams in the event with Lauren Morgan, Katie Wright and Jenni Cannon. That's David Baird also in the pic, competing with Simon Wood, James Baird and Calum McLean.

All the results are here.
