Former Scotland volleyball captain Kenny Barton today urged sports fans not to miss out on a bargain next week – see a Great Britain Olympic team in action for just £6.

The GB men’s volleyball team face Belgium in a three-match series at Edinburgh University’s Pleasance Sports Complex in a week that sees the Olympic torch relay hit the streets of Edinburgh.

The team – which will feature former City of Edinburgh middle player Mark McGivern – open on Tuesday night (7pm) and then face the Belgians again on Thursday (1pm) and next Saturday (3pm).

But while Thursday’s match is sold out, there are still tickets left for the other two clashes which promise a high level of entertainment.

Barton, now performance programme manager at British Volleyball, has been instrumental in bringing matches of this calibre back north of the Border for the first time in two years.

“For just £6 – £3 concessions – this is a great opportunity to see one of our Olympic teams in action so close to the Games,” he stated.
