The Scottish Wheelchair Curling Association has announced the players who will represent Scotland in the World Wheelchair Curling Championships in Sursee, Switzerland, February 2-9, 2008. They are Michael McCreadie, Aileen Neilson, Tom Killin, Jim Sellar and Rosemary Lenton. Tom Pendreigh is the Scotland team coach for the World event.
Michael, Aileen and Jim played in last season's World Championships in Solleftea, Sweden, bringing home the bronze medals. Tom Killin should have been in the team then, but illness prevented him from taking part. Now he's back. Rosemary Lenton is currently Scottish Wheelchair Champion with Aileen and Tom.
All competed at events in Utica in the USA and Richmond in Canada recently with the BC squad.
