Ladies triumph at Greenacres

ALL HAIL our latest Borders curling winners, the heroines of the Masters Competition played at Greenacres over the weekend, writes Alistair Lindsay.

The ladies in question were Margaret Robertson, Glynnice Lauder, Venetia Scott, and Gillian Smith, who braved some keen road surfaces on their journeys to and from the west, which perhaps had them tuned up for their games – and, after suffering a very shaky start, had them wondering if their attendance was worth the bother.

It’s another feather in Margaret’s bunnet as she is part of the Scottish Ladies’ senior rink all set to uphold the nation’s honour in the nearish future.

Swinton CC held their annual Invitation Bonspiel last Saturday evening with a full house for the single-session event.

Waz, aka Robert Walker, ran away with the honours.

Such was his tally that a joiner was on hand to extend the scoreboard.

In the most recent Agrii Border League session, Lees defeated St Boswells 9-4, Kelso went 10-6 over Selkirk and Greenlaw beat Roxburghe 12-something.

A resurgent Glendale headed Jedburgh 11-7 while Coldstream are in front in their section.

In the other section, Greenlaw, Swinton and Yester are all in contention as yet.
