The 'headline story' is that the current Scottish Seniors Champions, the Ken Horton team, failed to get through from the qualifying competition at Forfar. In a small section with just five teams, Ken, Gordon Butler, Angus Storrie and Eddie Binks won two and lost two and don't progress to the Scottish Senior Championship finals at the Lanarkshire Ice Rink, February 7-12.
So, who did get through? The six qualifiers from Forfar are Craig Hamilton and Billy Nairn, Gary Macfarlane and David Hardie (the latter after a three way tie for second place in their section), and Greig Henderson and Graeme Adam.
And from Greenacres the qualifiers are Gordon Crawford and Keith Prentice (the latter after a three way tie for second place in their section), Donnie Stark and Alastair McIntyre (the latter after a three way tie for second place in their section), and Willie Jamieson and Jim Hogg.
All the results are here and here.
Former Scottish and World Seniors' champ Keith Prentice (on left) is through again to the Seniors' finals. Here he is talking options with longtime third Lockhart Steele. Good to see Lockhart back on the ice again having been sidelined with injury earlier in the season. This photo from yesterday © Skip Cottage.
