Have your say

Holders Edinburgh Jets ended Troon Team Ayrshire’s unbeaten Scottish volleyball record but failed to claim a place in the women’s final of the John Syer Trophy.

Jets produced a stunning 25-20, 25-18, 19-25, 14-25, 15-10 win in Ayrshire, but it wasn’t enough as Troon won the two sets they needed to qualify for the final on sets difference.

Troon finished top of the group and will now face City of Edinburgh for the title at Ravenscraig Sports Centre this Sunday. Edinburgh beat Su Ragazzi 25-10, 25-21, 25-16 to book their place after losing to the same team in the league the previous weekend.

In the men’s competition, City of Edinburgh claimed their 
final place as they beat Bon 
Accord 25-21, 25-16, 25-10.

They face Kilmarnock Blaze in Sunday’s final, the Scottish League champions coming back from two sets down to edge Glasgow Mets 23-25, 
22-25, 25-18, 26-24, 15-10.
