Firstly I would like to extend my thanks to the SPA executive for re selecting me as the Masters B team manager.

As you know there is currently no official national team selection policy in place, however I have endeavoured to use some logic in selecting my team, even though this has resulted in the loss of one of my 2018 euro team championship players Stuart Anderson to the masters ‘A’ team, a promotion I must add he thoroughly deserves, and I hope he does as well for his new team as he did mine.

In my opinion it is only right that we field our best performing players preferably, but not solely restricted to a particular section and that the ‘A’ team manager has first choice of players followed in turn by the ‘B’, ‘B1’ and ‘B2’ team managers etc.

I was very disappointed when despite waiting for the ‘A’ team manager to take first choice of players that I then discover two of the players I contacted had already been asked and accepted to play for the third masters ‘B’ team. Ok there’s no policy in place, but surely there is still a logical process to follow until a new one is put in place.

So with the addition of one new player to the 2018 European championship team it gives me great pleasure to announce my team for the 2019 championships in Bridlington;

1. Mike McHardy – Manager
2. John Watson – Captain
3. Alan Banks
4. George Fagan
5. Mike Watson
6. Mark Donnan


I’m sure I speak for the whole team in not only welcoming our newest player Alan to the fold but also in wishing all our Sottish teams the very best for the 2019 championships.
