CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup in Slovenia

We are delighted to announce the selection of two men’s and women’s beach volleyball teams for the CEV Continental Cup, taking place in Portoroz, Slovenia from 14-15 June.  From the women’s teams we have Olympian Shauna Mullin paired with former Edinburgh teammate Anneka Hastings, and a new pairing which sees Olympic indoor captain Lynne Beattie partnering successful beach veteran Gillian Lyall.
On the men’s side, experienced pairing of Graham Riddle and Barry McGuigan were an obvious selection, and new pairing Robin Miedzybrodzki and Seain Cook look to make a dynamic duo.
Training has been intense and continues to test all our athletes. The competition sets them up against Norway, Slovenia, Northern Ireland and Belgium. Good luck to all teams on Scotland’s first official involvement in senior European Beach Volleyball competitions.
The teams selected to go to Slovenia on 14/15 June 2014 will be:
Robin Miedzybrodzki & Seain Cook
Barry McGuigan & Graham Riddle
Reserves – Callum Moir & Danny Traylor
Shauna Mullin & Anneka Hastings
