Mets will test City of Edinburgh’s credentials

Have your say

City of Edinburgh’s young guns have league leaders Glasgow Mets in their sights tomorrow when the Scottish Volleyball League resumes after a two-week break.

The Capital side have been playing down their title chances under new player-coach Danny Traylor in what is seen as a transitional season.

However, City have won four of their opening five matches in the league and John Syer Trophy so far and are gaining momentum.

Mets have a 100 per cent record and, with considerably more experience, are the early title favourites.

Therefore, tomorrow’s match at Queensferry High will provide an early indicator of what the season is likely to hold for City.

Defending champions Edinburgh Jets have not made the best of starts and sit second-bottom in the table ahead of tomorrow’s match at home to Bon Accord, who sit just above them.

In the women’s first division, there is a Capital derby with champions City of Edinburgh hosting Edinburgh Jets.

The City of Edinburgh club – who are rightly proud of their record of rearing their own players – are casting the net even wider. The club is hosting open sessions at Queensferry High School today and next Friday for Senior 1 and Senior 2 pupils to recruit new talent.
