Volleyvball: Edinburgh Jets prepare for take-off

Have your say

Edinburgh Jets seek to get their season off the ground in the women’s SVL Premier tomorrow, but face a difficult trip to Coltness to face Su Ragazzi.

Jets lost their league opener to champions City of Edinburgh and their new-look team will be put under the microscope again.

Ragazzi won their opener against QTS Troon in convincing fashion and have strengthened their ranks under new coach Vince Krawczyk.

He has brought in Claire Ramage from former club Troon as well as Caitlin McEwan from North Lanarkshire.

Jets beat NUVOC and Troon in the John Syer Trophy in their first competitive matches, but could not have had a more difficult start to their league programme.

Newly-promoted NUVOC travel to Ayrshire to face Troon after opening with a win over Aberdonia.

The Edinburgh side worked hard over the summer, putting in extra conditioning sessions on the beach and starting indoor work in July, and they are hoping it will pay off.

In the men’s SVL Premier, leaders NUVOC travel to Prestwick to face champions South Ayrshire in an intriguing match-up.

City of Edinburgh host Glasgow Mets, who lost a tight three-set opener with NUVOC, and Jets travel to City of Glasgow Ragazzi.
