Glorney 2018 update

June 16: The organisation task for the Glorney is progressing.

Thanks to the admin staff at Paisley University campus we now have over 150 rooms available in student halls of residence which should be sufficient to accommodate required numbers. Some players and accompanying parents, chaperones will be staying off campus. The student accommodation is a short walk to meal facilities and the playing venue.

Bus travel has been arranged for the French and Dutch teams who will be arriving at Glasgow and Edinburgh airports. Invoices have been submitted to all federations for their accommodation, travel and meal costs.

We will be publishing the full Scotland teams shortly. Our intention is to also publish the names of players from all six countries before the competition starts.
