Wheelchair curling at The Peak

Stirling’s Peak ice rink played host to the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Championship.

Holder Gregor Ewan from the Moray club, with Jim Gault, Jackie Cayton and Stirling Wheelchair Curling Club member Lizzie Jackson made it to the final after a close semi game with the South Lanarkshire rink of Jim Sellar. Scottish skip Aileen Neilson and her team of Robert McPherson, Reg Craig and Stirling curler David Leeson came through an exciting encounter against the South Lanarkshire team of Alex Harvie.

In the final the rink of Aileen Neilson took the game and the title of Scottish champions by 6-3.
Local curlers David and Lizzie both said how much they had enjoyed their first outing at this level of curling and said that they cannot wait for the next competition: The Friendship Trophy, where Stirling are joint holders, at The Peak this month.

Judy Mackenzie, president of the Stirling Wheelchair Curling Club, thanked everyone concerned, especially the ice staff Dougie and Graham and the catering staff at The Peak.
