Edinburgh curler Gina Aitken bowed out of the Kinross Open after running into an inspired display from local skip Ross McCleary in yesterday’s quarter-finals.

The Scottish junior champion reached the last eight thanks to Saturday’s 6-5 victory over Dundee’s John Duff and she also acquitted herself creditably when losing 6-3 to double world silver medallist Tom Brewster, who topped Section A.

But the wheels came off yesterday morning as McCleary stormed through 13-2 after counting six stones at the third end and five more at the fifth.
