Capital curler Gina Aitken claimed her fifth Scottish Mixed Doubles title after she and Arbroath’s Duncan Menzies won today’s final at Braehead Arena.

Menzies was a late replacement for Aitken’s injured partner Scott Andrews, but the scratch pairing gelled instantly, winning all five group matches before eliminating Alice Spence and Craig Waddell 6-4 in the semi-finals.

Defending champions Jayne Stirling and Fraser Kingan were also unbeaten, but Aitken and Menzies shrugged off an early 3-1 deficit and roared back to win 7-4.

They will now represent Scotland at the World Championships in Norway in April, although Andrews may be fit enough to partner Aitken in Stavanger.
