FOUR SCOTTISH TEAMS IN STRONG FIELD AT GLYNHILL LADIES INTERNATIONAL

Posted on

Having reached the final of the Perth Masters earlier this month Team Wilson are targeting another run to the play-offs when they return to Scottish ice as part of an international field at the Glynhill Ladies International at Braehead this weekend (16-19 January).

Skip Maggie Wilson and her rink navigated a high class line-up to earn their best result this season when finishing runners-up to former world champion Eve Muirhead on home ice at the Dewars Centre and another strong performance at a World Curling Tour event in Glasgow will provide them with the perfect preparation for the nationals next month.

“This is our last event before the Scottish Championships, so it’s a great opportunity to test ourselves against another strong field,” said Wilson.

“It’s great to have another Tour event of this calibre on our doorstep and hopefully we can build on our good performance in Perth a couple of weeks ago and have a good run to the play-offs. 

“Another strong performance here will give us a lot of confidence going into the Scottish. We have worked hard all season and tried to make the most of the opportunities we have been given, as this is our first year being supported by the British Curling programme. We are seeing the benefits of the extra support and training from the sportscotland Institute of Sport and are excited about our last push just before we head back to Perth for the Scottish Champs,”

Current national champions Team Jackson are also in the field and they will compete this weekend with their regular line-up as Naomi Brown returns from injury to join team mates Sophie Jackson, Mili Smith and Sophie Sinclair.

Teams MacDonald and Henderson complete the Scottish contingent in the 16 team line-up, which includes representatives from China, Japan, Korea, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Sweden and Canada.
