Scottish Borders to support England at Glasgow 2014

People in the Scottish Borders are being asked to support England during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 'Support a 2nd Team' has been developed as part of a wider Games Legacy, aimed at encouraging local authorities in Scotland to cheer on other Commonwealth countries.

The initiative will involve a number of events, led by sportscotland, which will provide an opportunity to create partnerships with nations and territories participating in the Games.

Scottish Borders has been linked with England (Europe) and Tonga (Oceania), and Dumfries and Galloway has been asked to support Grenada (Caribbean) and Northern Ireland (Europe).
