Two young volleyballers from Kinross High School, Mitchell Brown and Mark Cathro, will be in Manchester this weekend for the Sainsbury’s UK School Games with the Scotland East Boys’ Team.

Sainsbury’s UK School Games is massive, involving a whole range of Olympic sports and the Scotland East squad has been working hard with coaches Doug Crockart and Ian Brownlee with weekend training schedules stretching as far back as July.

A total of ten sports will be showcased plus two paralympic sports with future Olympic sportsmen and women getting the ideal competitive springboard to catch the eye.

Both Mitchell and Mark won bronze with the Scotland East squad at last year’s games and coaches Brownlee and Crockart reckon this year’s squad could go at least one better with the ultimate aim being gold.

It won’t be easy with strong squads expected from England Cadets and England Juniors with Scotland West and Northern Ireland also in the frame.

Games will be played over three days commencing on the Friday with all matches will be streamed live over the three days.
