Scottish Men's Qualifiers

The second leg of the qualifying competition for the Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Men's Curling Championship was at the Dewar's Rinks in Perth this weekend.

In section A, the John Hamilton and Ewan MacDonald teams came through, and there was a three way tie for the third place in the rankings. Two rounds of tiebreakers saw the Duncan Menzies team (Murray Young, skip, Stuart Taylor, Cammy Smith and Angus Dowell), as the third qualifiers. Duncan himself was in Innsbruck at the WYOG.

Sandy Reid, runners-up last year, did not qualify.

Section A results are all here.

In Section B the qualifiers were David Smith, Jay McWilliam and David Murdoch. And in Section C, Logan Gray topped the rankings with eight straight wins. Graeme Black and David Edwards were the other qualifiers from C.

Section B and C results are here.

These nine teams will join Tom Brewster's team for the finals, February 13-19, at the Dewar's Rinks.
