U17 Semis at Forfar

There were two great semifinals at Forfar this morning. Bruce Mouat and his team of Derrick Sloan, Rowena Kerr and Elspeth Lean came back from 4-0 down to win in the last end against Gina Aitken, Vicky Wright, Katy Richardson and Layla Al Saffar who was substituting for Rachael Halliday.

That's Bruce and Katy in the pic above.

The other semifinal matched Stuart Marshall against Duncan Menzies, and this was close for six ends. In the seventh though, Duncan, Stuart Taylor, Robert Fawns and Angus Dowell counted three and there was little chance for Stuart, Fiona Telfer, Katie Murray and Kirsty Morton with just the one end remaining. That's Stuart and Duncan above.

It will be a Menzies-Mouat final this afternoon, with the big prize up for grabs!

Here are a few photos from the morning:

Derrick is saying to Elspeth, "This is a magic brush. If you give it a wee rub a genie will appear and offer to make your wishes come true. Honestly!"

Kirsty Morton, Katie Murray and Fiona Telfer. One feels this should have a caption too!

Stuart shouting at his women!

Layla Al Saffar was a grand substitute for the Aitken team!

That's Fiona's trophy shirt. She's not really changed her nationality.

Stuart delivers with Kirsty and Katie at the ready.
