Motion S5M-19496: Liam McArthur, Orkney Islands, Scottish Liberal Democrats, Date Lodged: 21/10/2019


Shannon Pasotti's Selection to the Scottish Rugby Futures Programme

That the Parliament congratulates Shannon Pasotti, who is from Orkney, on being selected to the Scottish Rugby Futures under-18 programme for the upcoming season; notes that the programme was launched in 2018 to give players the opportunity to develop their skills in a high-performance and competitive environment; understands that the players will access 13 fortnightly training sessions and monthly performance camps delivered in venues across Scotland, which will be supported with training matches against the other home nations; believes that the high number of players who were put forward and selected for the programme reflects the current strength-in-depth of girls' and women’s rugby across Scotland; considers that Shannon’s selection is testament to her hard work and impressive level of commitment to her sport and is also an exciting moment for everyone involved at Orkney RFC who have been involved with her progress and who work tirelessly to promote and develop programmes that have increased female participation in rugby across Orkney, and wishes Shannon and her new teammates every success for the upcoming season and beyond.
