Junior Home International preview

Scotland hill running teams will face England, Wales and hosts Ireland at the Junior Home International on Saturday.

The event takes place at Glendalough, in the Wicklow Mountains, after being hosted at Aberfoyle last September.

Aberfoyle was the venue for the Scotland trial races with four boys and four girls picked for the two age groups – U16 and U19 – who contest the Junior Home International on an annual basis.

England will field two teams at each age group and their selections are listed on the England Athletics website.

Andrew Lawler and Jacob Adkin, who performed so well for Team GB and NI at the World Champs in Italy on Sunday and brought home team bronze medals at Junior Men level,  are selected for Scotland to race in Ireland and will be among the favourites for the U19 race.
