More than 350 young athletes showcased their sporting skills at the East Renfrewshire Secondary School Games last week.

The games were opened by professional basketball player and Commonwealth Games athlete Fraser Malcolm, who plays for the Caledonia Gladiators.

Williamwood High School took home the winning trophy for the second year in a row at the event, which was organised by East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure’s (ERCL) Active Schools team.

Anthony McReavy from ERCL told the Barrhead News: "We welcomed more than 350 pupils from S1 to S3 for an unforgettable day at this year's East Renfrewshire Secondary Games.

"We want to congratulate all the young people who participated from each high school for their efforts, determination, teamwork and sporting abilities.

“Well done to Williamwood High School, who took home the trophy this year after an excellent performance across all sports."

The events took place at three locations across the local authority culminating in the winning schools' ceremony, which was hosted at Williamwood High School.

Gary McGunnigle, Active Schools team leader, added: “East Renfrewshire Secondary Games has become one of the most prominent days in our programme of events which runs throughout the year.

"It is fantastic to see young people in East Renfrewshire developing their skills, excelling at sport and enjoying themselves.

"Congratulations to all of the pupils who participated and thanks to all our sports club partners, Clarkston Tennis, Giffnock Hockey, Whitecraigs Rugby and Scottish Disability Sport (SDS).

“We'd also like to thank school staff and our pupil volunteers from Williamwood, St. Luke's and Barrhead high schools, who made the event so successful along with our Active Schools and Sports Development teams.”
