TWO young people from South Ayrshire are set to lead inspirational conferences across Scotland in September as part of SportScotland’s Young Ambassadors.

After a rigorous recruitment process Emily McCaughie (left) and Eve Kennedy (right) have been named among the 32-strong conference delivery team who will organise and deliver six conferences designed to inspire the next generation of leaders in sport.

Eve hopes she can help inspire this group of Young Ambassadors, she said: “I really enjoyed attending the conference at Hampden two years ago when I was a new Young Ambassador, I was really inspired by the conference delivery team.

"I would like to give back the same experience to this year’s Young Ambassadors.”

Athletes will also be there to share their experiences in sport, with Commonwealth medallists such as diver James Heatly, triathlete Marc Austin and swimmer Robbie Renwick attending in recent years
