The Scottish squad of Christine Thomson, Ed Strachan and Douglas Hamilton competed in the European Veteran’s Championship in Lulea, Sweden, last weekend. The team faced a tough draw against Denmark (8th in the competition 2 years ago) in the opening round but put up a strong fight. Here are the results of the first 5 Swiss rounds:
1. Denmark 13 – 9 Scotland
2. Switzerland 7 – 13 Scotland
3. Scotland 13 – 12 Hungary
4. Estonia 13 – 10 Scotland
5. Poland 9 – 13 Scotland
With a record of 5 wins and ranked 10th after the Swiss rounds, Scotland faced an elimination match, again against Poland. The winners would qualify for the main competition with the losers into the Nations Championship.
Elimination Round: Scotland 11 – 13 Poland
So Scotland went into the 1/4 finals of the Nations Championship and were drawn against Norway
1/4 Nations Championship: Scotland 3 – 13 Norway
A very creditable effort from the Scotland squad who faced tough competition along the way. The main competition was won by Monaco who defeated Denmark in the final. The Nations Championship was won by England who fannied Norway in the final.
