Eastwood High School are gearing up for the 2019 SP Energy Networks Warriors Championship final which takes place on the main pitch at Scotstoun this Saturday prior to Glasgow Warriors v Edinburgh Rugby.

Eastwood, along with Wallace High School, made it through to this year’s showpiece final ahead of 23 other competing schools who played across five rounds of qualifying at Scotstoun.

More than 1,000 kids took part in the tournament, with each school represented by an S1 and S2 boys’ team and an under-15 girls’ team.

The finalists were decided last month after an enthralling semi-final, with Eastwood and Wallace getting the better of Lenzie Academy, Balfron High School and Largs Academy.

Eastwood High School S1 captain Cameron Healy believes it will be an amazing experience to play in front of so many spectators at Scotstoun and is relishing the prospect of his school’s first outing in a Warriors Championship final.

He said: “I am equally nervous and excited about the final, which should be a great occasion.

“Being a captain in this final is a real honour and I’ll enjoy the responsibility.

“Wallace High School represent quite a challenge for us but I really hope our three teams can perform well.”

Frank Mitchell, CEO at SP Energy Networks, added: “Playing at the home of Glasgow Warriors is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any young person interested in rugby.
