Curling: Wales host Four Nations in Scotland as Deeside Leisure Centre unavailable

THE Four Nations will take place in Scotland once again after the First Province of Wales League were unable to secure use of Deeside Leisure Centre for the whole weekend to bring the curling competition to Flintshire.

Last year's competition was hosted by the English Curling Association at Fenton’s Rink in Kent and Wales gave a good account of themselves.

This year’s competition, which takes place this weekend, will be officially hosted by the Welsh Curling Association, but the matches will take place at Greenacres Curling Rink in Renfrewshire, Scotland.

Deeside Curling Club remain at the top of the League Cup standings after they defeated Rookies to maintain their 100% record.

The First Province of Wales League, based at Deeside Leisure Centre, has lost a team midway through the season.

Sealand Whackers have withdrawn from all competitions and the Games Secretary, along with the rest of the FPOW Committee, is still in discussions to decide how to adapt the competition to the withdrawal.

The fourth round of the League Cup Schenkel competition is on Monday, January 23 with Connah's Quay Seals up against the Rookies in the early game.
