More Fenton's Saturday

I've been trying to make sure that everyone who has turned out for Scotland at the Four Nations this weekend gets, at the very least, a namecheck on the blog! Above is Shelagh Fullerton, playing in Stewart Sutherland's mixed team against Ireland this afternoon.

This was a key moment in the game. That's John McDermott in the head. Just his skip's stone to come. Remove the yellow for a three, and the game would be secure. Did he make it?

Here is the Waterfront ACDO in action.

Catriona Cooper was the other member of the team.

Elspeth Burton and James Carswell were the front end of the Scotland team with Jim Morrison and Dawn Watson also against Ireland this afternoon. Caption: "I'll just pretend I've never met him!"

It should be come clear soon, just whether Scotland is in with a chance of winning any of the trophies. All will become clear tomorrow. First though, the English Curling Association, the hosts of the event, have laid on a hurdle for all the players to get over - a dinner dance to a ceilidh band tonight! Report tomorrow, maybe.
