Robertson and Scots unbeaten in Canada

Local Curler Margaret Robertson is in Canada this week representing Scotland in the World Seniors Championships.

And she and her team-mates have put themselves in a great position to qualify out of their groups and a possible medal play-off spot by winning all three of their opening games.

Scotland beat the Czech Republic, Australia and Sweden (9-1) in their first three matches and were the only unbeaten side in their section.

Margaret, who comes from East Ord near Berwick, plays out of the Kelso Ice Rink and is a member of the four-strong team playing in the Women’s Championships at Fredericton.

Along with skip Christine Cannon, Margaret Richardson and Janet Lindsay, she qualified for the championships by winning the Scottish National title at Hamilton earlier this year.

The Scots, at the time of writing, still have Finland, Switzerland and Italy to play, but they have given themselves every chance.

The event also includes teams from Austria, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Japan, USA and Russia who are in an opposing section.

The competition is ongoing throughout the week with the medal places to be decided in the play-offs this weekend.
