Media Release: Scottish Thistles versus Calypso Girls – now a two-match test


THE final test match between the Scottish Thistles and Trinidad and Tobago, scheduled for Thursday, April 3, has been cancelled.

The two matches on April 1 and 2 at Glasgow’s Emirates’ Arena will be played as previously announced, forming part of the Scots’ preparations for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Maggie Murray, CEO of Netball Scotland, said: “We sincerely apologise for the cancellation of the third and final test match but it was necessary because our visitors had to make alternative arrangements for their return flight at short notice.

“But we are pleased that the two matches on April 1 and 2 are still going ahead. The teams are closely matched – we are ranked 12th in the world and they are eighth – so, two exciting nights of action are promised.”

Those who have already purchased tickets for the April 3 game have the option to attend either the first or second test match on Tuesday, April 1, or Wednesday, April 2.

Refunds will be given to those who are unable to attend the Tuesday or Wednesday matches.

For those who have purchased three match passes, they will be refunded the cost of one match. Fans are urged to call the box office (0141 353 8000) to organise this.

Tickets are now on sale at the Box Office 0141 353 8000 or they can be bought at the Box Office on arrival at the venue. Doors open 6.30 pm.
