Kate Bradley, 16, joined the voice of PRO12 rugby Hugh Dan MacLen­nan and War­riors’ player an­a­lyst Lee Jones in the com­men­tary box at the sold- out match against Ze­bre at Scot­stoun sta­dium on Fri­day April 14.

Fifth year pupil Kate beat off com­pe­ti­tion from nearly 20 other en­tries from Scot­tish schools to win the prize for her com­men­tary on the Va­lerie Fraser shinty cup fi­nal.

Kate said: ‘I had such a great time at the game, the ground was buzzing. It was just amaz­ing to see the whole pro­duc­tion team in ac­tion – I had never re­alised the amount of work that goes into a live sports broad­cast. My per­sonal high­light was get­ting to see how ev­ery­thing was brought to­gether – from the care­ful prepa­ra­tions be­fore­hand to watch­ing the game broad­cast live on TV. It was very im­pres­sive – and the re­sult was an added bonus!’

Mar­got McCuaig of mneTV was in charge of the broad­cast on the day, and was hugely im­pressed with Kate’s en­thu­si­asm, en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to give the com­pe­ti­tion a go in 2018.

Ms McCuaig said: ‘It was great to meet Kate and I hope she con­tin­ues to show such a keen in­ter­est in com­men­tary.

‘I would en­cour­age any­one with an in­ter­est in play­ing or watch­ing sport to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion this year and it may lead to a whole host of new and ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.’

The War­riors beat the Ital­ian side 45 to 10.
