Meanwhile, British Curling’s Paralympic curlers lifted the Stirling Wheelchair International title for the first time at their season opener in Stirling’s The Peak ice rink.

In an event which boasted eight teams with international pedigree, the British squad of Jo Butterfield, Gregor Ewan, Charlotte McKenna, Hugh Nibloe, Stewart Pimblett and Gary Smith, which rotated throughout the week, dropped only one game in the tournament to lift the trophy.

Skip Gregor Ewan, from Elgin, said: “It’s been totally different this week.

“As a squad we have been trying a number of different things and playing particular attention to every detail including all of the small things that help to make a difference.

“From delivery to breathing right, it has been hard keeping that level of concentration up for a full eight ends but it definitely made a difference.

“It always helps to boost confidence to get a win at the start of our season, so it is brilliant and all the work we are putting in is making a difference.”
