Scottish Wheelchair Curling Championships this weekend

Eleven teams are competing at the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Championships this weekend in Aberdeen, and new British National Team Coach Tony Zummack is in Scotland watching the action. He is on a scouting visit and also looking at accommodation for a more permanent move which he hopes will be in May.

The teams played their round robin games from two groups, with the top two teams in each group playing in Sunday's semi-final/final.

After round robin play, Aileen Neilson with World silver medallist teammate Tom Killin, along with Michael McCreadie and Ian Donaldson will face a team skipped by Allan Spence.

Aileen's Prague teammates Gregor Ewan and Michael MacKenzie, with Jim Gault and Jackie Cayton, will face Jim Sellar's team in the other semi-final.

You can see results HERE and also view a large selection of photos from the event on Bob Cowan's Skip Cottage blog.
