Ian Robson, the new chief executive of Sportscotland, has confirmed that school sport is set for a windfall following the announcement that an extra pound;100 million will be invested in Scottish sport.
Mr Robson announced at the "Turning the Tide" swimming conference in Glasgow last Tuesday that significant money will be put into school and community sport and there will be funds to improve sports facilities and fooball academies. There will be an emphasis on improving sports participation as well as extending the talent pool for elite sport.
He said that any monies forthcoming would be "outcome focussed and not process driven", an indication that less should go on sports administration and more on sport itself.
Mr Robson said a national facilities audit will be conducted next year to help future decisions.
