Commonwealth Games: Warning over funding crisis.

Byline: MICHAEL BAILLIE

THE Scotland squad for the XVII Commonwealth Games in Manchester was announced yesterday but future teams will suffer at major sporting events if more funding isn't found.

Unless fresh money is injected, Scotland will have to cut back on teams going to the 2004 Youth Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Scottish Commonwealth Games chairman Louise Martin said: "A lot of people think all the athletes are funded by the lottery but that does not pay for the costs of the Commonwealth Games.

"It will not affect this team at these Games but it is not too late for new sponsors to get involved."
