Captain of the over 50s Gordon MacKenzie said: ?This tournament is rapidly becoming a major international hockey event for veterans. This is the second time Scotland has been invited to take part and we are taking a strong squad to face competitive opponents.
?We're looking forward to representing Scotland in this prestigious event. We've also got our eye on 2012 as, with the Olympics coming to London, we understand that England is trying to arrange a similar masters? event to coincide with the Games.?
Scotland's over 50s face New Zealand, England, Malaysia SAS and Australia in their pool whilst the over 40s are pitched against Australia 45s, New Zealand, Hong Kong 45s and England 45s. Both sides play four or five games over the week-and according to MacKenzie: ?When bones are creaking tournaments become a real challenge.?
