Scotland teams head into the Celtic Games in Dublin on this weekend for the annual U18 and U16 match.

Wales and Ireland offer the opposition for age groups in the traditional international track and field opportunity for the stars of tomorrow.

Celtic Games Head coach, Mark Pollard, has urged those selected for Scotland to take their chance in what for many will be the first step on the ladder of international competition.

As is usual for the Celtic Games match, it was one athlete per event at both U18 and U16 age groups with recent form taken into account in the selection process. As is also the norm with the Celtic Games, only certain events are scheduled at U16 age group, hence a smaller team there.

Congratulations to all those preparing to compete for Scotland in the 2017 Celtic Games event on Saturday and to their families, coaches and clubs.
