Edinburgh curler Colin Campbell had the Galbraith Trophy in his sights as the Aberdeen City Open was getting underway today.
Campbell will once again play ‘lead’ for Aberdeen skip David Edwards who tops the Scottish Curling Tour standings going into the final event of the season. The Trophy, plus prize money, will be theirs if they can stay ahead of Stranraer’s Frazer Hare and Forfar’s Murray Young this weekend.
Murrayfield’s Kerry Barr takes on the men at Curl Aberdeen after her fine recent performance at the Glynhill International in Glasgow, while Paul Stevenson will also represent Edinburgh as he returns to his native city.
World silver medallist Tom Brewster bids to retain his title on home ice, but his form has been patchy this winter with victory at November’s Edinburgh International followed by a seventh place finish at the European Championships in Sweden.
