Glasgow Touch at the Euros

A number of Glasgow players have recently returned from Paris where they were part of the Scotland squad competing in the European Championships, 10-13th July 2008. Victor Francisco Suarez played in the 2nd placed Mens Masters, Douglas Johnson in the Mens Open, Nicola Jobson Womens Open and Nikki Walker Womens 30s. Congratulations to Donna Kirisome and Damien Richardson who were part of the successful Mixed Open team who brought home the gold!

The players committed endless hours of their weekends (usually in very wet conditions) in preperation for the Championships, and helped Scotland achieve 3rd place overall. A total of 17 countries were in attendance, including invitational squads from New Zealand and Australia. Also representing Glasgow in Paris were Douglas Mannix and Pauly McGilveray who stepped up to play for Italy.

'And one for the refs', special mentions also go to Nicole Teo and Rachel Edwards who time and again showed the players exactly 5 metres.

Well done to all for their hard work and achievements and check out the gallery for some pics of the guys and girls in action.
