The students also beat Su Ragazzi II in straight sets 25-19, 25-16, 15-6 and will join their first-team in the SVL Premier.

The promotion comes hot on the heels of the first-team reaching next month’s Scottish Cup final after beating holders Su Ragazzi the previous weekend.

In the men’s SVL Premier, NUVOC suffered a setback as they seek to avoid relegation, losing in straight sets at Forza Ragazzi 21-25, 23-25, 18-25.
