Lockerbie Junior Invitation

The ice has been busy at the Lockerbie rink this weekend. Even though some of the top junior men's teams were unavailable, competing in the Bruadar Scottish Men's Championship qualifiers, eight teams took part in one section, playing five games drawn at random. No fewer than twelve junior women's teams competed in two sections! That is a good turnout.

I'll have the results tomorrow. Meantime, here are a few photos of the action today.

Iain Wilson's Kinross team of Hamish Geyer, Pete Howden and Fraser Thompson were here. That's Iain above.

Ally Fraser's team were looking good. That's Steven Mitchell encouraging Scott Andrews and Kerr Drummond.

Megan Priestley hasn't been on the ice much this season, but was substituting at Lockerbie.

Ewan Mitchell in the head for the Forfar team, in charge of Duncan Menzies, Alastair Stewart and Thomas Halder.

The inverness team was skipped by Scott Fraser with Peter Macintyre, Ruairidh Greenwood and Jamie Fraser. Here is the team at work!

Cammy Smith and Kyle Smith look after Thomas Muirhead's stone in the Grant Hardie side.

And here is Grant, in conversation with one of the stars of the junior scene, Ross Whyte.

And here are the Dumfries juniors hard at work. Chris Howat has played the stone and Ross, Zak Stewart and Cameron McNay all work on it hard.

Louise Mansion watches as Katie Murray and Kirsty Morton do the sweeping, with Amy Bilsborough in the head.
