Andrew McGregorThe UK School Games Programme continued last weekend with a 2 day residential camp at Inverclyde National Training Centre in Largs.  All four squads had 3 training sessions on the Saturday and 2 sessions on the Sunday.  The progress made by all the players was outstanding and sets the scene for hopefully a very successful UK School Games in Newcastle in September.

Thank you to all the Coaches and Team Managers who worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to make the best possible use of the opportunity and my special thanks go to Andy Dalziell (Tap Tap) for all his great work and enthusiasm over the 2 days.

The programme continues on Saturday  14th August with a 1 day session at Linlithgow Academy for the East boys and girls and Wishaw Sports Centre for the West boys and girls.

The girls have been given an exciting opportunity and will play Northern Ireland as we continue to build our links with our neighbours across the water.  The match times are as follows and it would be great to see friends and family along to support.
