McCreadie Wins Shotmaker

Michael McCreadie may have retired from international play, but he hasn't lost his touch! The Braehead curler won the 'Shotmaker' final at Kinross with 30 points. Second was Jim Sellar (South Lanarkshire) 26 points, third Marie Duncan (Kinross) 23 points, and fourth Seamus McCardle (Inverness) 20 points. The 'Shotmaker' is an individual competition and is made up of six tests: Draw through a port; Take out through port; Guarding; Tap up; Drawing from halfway; and Beat the Shot.

Prizes will be presented at the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Championship this weekend. Eight teams line up for this event, see here. Michael is competing at Curl Aberdeen in the Aileen Neilson team with Mo Simpson and Seamus McCardle.
