Great Britain Olympic women’s coach Audrey Cooper has landed one of the top jobs in British volleyball.

Cooper, from Whitburn, has been appointed Technical and Talent Director for Volleyball England.

Having spent last season coaching in Switzerland after London 2012, the Scot will oversee national team and coaching set-ups south of the border.

It is another feather in the cap for the former Whitburn Academy pupil who is the only female on the Federation of International Volleyball’s (FIVB) coaching commission.
