Profile of Team Shedden

The Shedden team which finished 5th on the SCT leaderboard last season is very much looking forward to the season ahead and hope to participate in 6 of the 8 SCT events.

They also plan to play in the Scottish Championships.

Chay Telfer and John Tait are returning again this season with Graeme Hay coming in to replace Hugh Thompson.

With his head still fully lodged in summer mode, Graham's goals and aspirations lie with getting the entry forms in on time and finding a suitable team outfit.

As consummate athletes, Team Shedden is planning a sober season. This does not involve avoidance of alcohol, it just involves avoidance of Team Gracie aka Team COO!
He is very happy to see the curling tour going from strength to strength and plan to support it as best they can.
We wish Team Shedden all the best for the season and look forward to seeing them on the SCT.

Profile of Team MacDonald

Last years SCT runner up Ally Fraser has joined forces with Ewan MacDonald to add a bit of young blood to a very experienced line up.

Ewan will also be joined by Euan Byers and Duncan Fernie in what will be a strong line up for next season.

It will be really good to see Duncan back on the ice.

This team will have ambitions of winning the Scottish Championships and getting another chance to represent Scotland on the International stage.

The MacDonald team are planning to play in a couple of SCT events along with the Scottish Championships. Ewan was runner up in the Stirling Invitational on last seasons tour and will be hoping to go one better this year.

Ewan stated that it was great to see the Tour developing and growing and hoped this would lead to more teams challenging at the top level.

We wish Ewan and his team all the success for this season.
