After 4 years of 4th position Scotland made it onto the podium by beating Germany in the European Team Championships in Warsaw. Greg Lobban secured the winning point (after being 7-2 down in the deciding game!) to take the bronze medal against the side ranked 1 place above them (winning on games count-back).

A brilliant result for the team of Alan Clyne, Greg Lobban, Dougie Kempsell, Kevin Moran, Rory Stewart & Chris Leiper.

Simon Rösner 3-2 Alan Clyne 13/15 4/11 11/5 11/5 11/5
Raphael Kandra 2 – 2 Greg Lobban 11/6 6/11 11/5 9/11
Rudi Rohrmüller 2-3 Douglas Kempselll 6/11 11/8 9/11 11/3 8/11
Wirth Lukas 1-3 Kevin Moran 9/11 9/11 11/7 3/11
