TEAM JACKSON SET FOR CANADIAN ACTION

Posted on

National Champions Team Jackson will join the Scottish challenge in Canada as they take part in the Gord Carroll Curling Classic, in Ontario this weekend (25 -27 October). 

With their fellow Scots Team Muirhead, European Champions Team Mouat and Team Paterson already in action at the Grand Slam Masters event in North Bay, Sophie Jackson and her colleagues play their opening match tomorrow against Ottawa’s Team Little in Whitby.

“We are excited to be back in Canada for our next two events,” said their lead, Sophie Sinclair.

The quartet, having enjoyed some good performances in the province last month reaching the play-off stage at the Stu Sells and the semi final at the KW Fall Classic during their first Canadian campaign, Sinclair feels they have invested plenty of training to fully prepare for the tournaments ahead, in spite of being forced to make a line-up change. 

“We are playing both events with Leanne McKenzie, who is kindly joining us for this Canadian trip, as unfortunately Mili (Smith) has been unwell and was unable to join us out here,” Sinclair added.

“However, we have had some key sessions at home at the National Curling Academy over the last two weeks. So we feel ready to take on some good teams in the coming weeks and we wish Mili a very speedy recovery”.

Following the Gord Carroll Curling Classic, Jackson’s rink will compete in the Royal LePage Women’s Fall Classic in Kemptville, Ontario (31 October – 3 November).
