Monday 6th August 2018

Manchester International website

Scotland head for the Manchester International next week for the now annual match – taking place on Wednesday 15 August at the Manchester Regional Arena.

It’s two years since the pilot event saw Scotland send a team south for the first time and that was repeated again in the summer of 2017.

The scottishathletics Track and Field Commission saw it as a second international opportunity in the year for our athletes to follow on from the traditional early-season Loughborough International in May.

And now we are delighted to confirm selections for Scotland in a number of events with the team including

four of those involved with GB at the European Championships – Kirsten McAslan, Chris Bennett, Kirsty Law and Allan Smith.

Scotland will face teams from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ulster, GB Juniors and a British League and UK Women’s League select. The main event is from 4pm to 9pm and tickets are only £5 per adult with U16s free.

Giffnock North AC athlete, Erin Wallace, is the GB Juniors pick for the Women’s 1500m next week.
