Scottish Qualifiers Update

Logan Gray and his team of Alasdair Guthrie, Steven Mitchell and Sandy Gilmour are undefeated after four games in the Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Curling Championship qualifiers at the Dewar's Centre in Perth. They top Section C after beating the David Edwards team this evening, the latter now with just one win from three games.

David Smith's team are undefeated after three games in Section B ...

... although David Murdoch has lost one of the three games his team has played. That was to Jay McWilliam's junior side who finish the first weekend on three wins and one loss.

All the results from Sections B and C are here.

John Hamilton, Ewan MacDonald and Struan Macnee jointly head Section A, all with three wins and one loss. Last season's runners-up, the Sandy Reid team, are on two wins and two losses. Section A results are here.

Thanks to Hugh Stewart for the three photos above.

Just one more ....

It is good to see new faces in the qualifiers, especially this 'men in blue' team, competing for the first time. In the photo above third player Quentin Russell (Lothian and Borders Police) has delivered, with lead Steve Warden (Grampian Police) and second Dougie Telfer (Central Police) at the ready. Graeme MacKenna (Northern Constabulary) is the skip in the house. This is the first time in the 38 years of the Scottish Police Curling Association that they have entered a team in the Scottish Championship. They have yet to record their first win though, in Section A. This photo is courtesy of Ewan Ramage.

The qualifying competition continues next Friday. The top three from each section qualify for the finals.
