Team Bio

Ross Paterson previously played with Tom Brewster and started skipping his own squad in 2018. Paterson had a sensational run at the 2018 BOOST National in Conception Bay South, N.L., in just his third Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling tournament at skip. His team qualified with a 2-2 record in pool play and rolled off three consecutive playoff victories to capture the men’s title including a 4-3 victory over compatriots Team Mouat in the final — the first all-Scottish final in Grand Slam history.

Kyle Waddell threw second stones for Kyle Smith prior to joining Team Paterson and represented Great Britain at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Waddell also won all three types of medals at the world junior championships with Smith.

Duncan Menzies served as the alternate for Team Smith at the 2014 world junior championships and returned to the tournament following year at third with Bruce Mouat. Menzies earned bronze medals both times.

Craig Waddell, who previously served as Team Paterson’s alternate, joined the team full-time at lead in 2021 following the retirement of Michael Goodfellow.
