With Commonwealth Games places for April in the Gold Coast, Australia, still to be confirmed and some top quality English divers also making the trip north it promises to be a top quality event.

Reid will be competing in her home city for the first time since she became a European champion alongside Tom Daley in the summer in the 3m mixed synchro event.

Since then she has relocated to London and is excited to be back as she aims for her third Commonwealth Games appearance.

Edinburgh Diving Club duo Heatly and Thomson recently won a silver medal in the 10m synchro event at the FINA Grand Prix in Australia.

As a result they are heading into the meet feeling good and for teenager Thomson the next few days will give him more exposure to top level competition as he continues his impressive rise up the senior ranks.

In recent years Heatly has a good record at this event and will want to keep that up. The first dives take place from 6pm tonight.
