Indoor Grand Match

Across Scotland last Saturday, 15 ice rinks hosted the Indoor Grand Match with over 529 club teams participating in the third event of its kind since its origination in 2000.

I am pleased to report that Aberdeen 1 beat Lothain Ladies 8-3 at Greenacres and Aberdeen 2 drew with Clydesdale Bank Midlothain 5-5 at Perth which means Aberdeen Curling Club successfully added 5 points to the North's total.

At the end of the day and once all the scores had been cross checked thoroughly the Grand Match Trophy was awarded to the South, with a shot difference of 379 points. The results can be found here.
