TEAM BRYCE CLAIM FIRST SCOTTISH INTERNATIONAL WIN OF CURLING SEASON
British Curling up and comers Team Bryce provided the first evidence of the benefits of the facilities at the new National Curling Academy (NCA) when they claimed victory at the Tallinn Challenger tournament.
On the first weekend of the 2017/18 season they were the lone Scottish representatives at the Curling Champions Tour (CCT) event in the Estonian capital and they went through it unbeaten, coming through the pool stages as the only team to win all four matches, then seeing off Russia’s Team Eremin in the semi-finals before comfortably defeating Latvia’s Team Gulbis 7-2 in a one-sided final.
“It was a really good stepping stone to start our season,” said skip Cameron Bryce.
“We played some good curling which gave us a chance to start the season off positively. The whole team played really well although we are still learning with our change of line-up for the season. The ice was tricky at times and I felt our management of this helped us overcome our opposition.”
It was the first international tournament featuring a Scottish team to be completed since the NCA was opened last month and Bryce has clearly felt the benefit of working there.
“We are looking forward to getting back to the NCA for the next two weeks to work on a few things in getting ready for Braehead Open,” he added.
