30 June 2014

All the Scotland youth squads showed great strength this weekend when playing tough opponents England.

The U18 squads made the journey south to Lilleshall National sporting centre to face old rivals England. Two games were playing gin total with the first boys game losing 4-1 he scots lone goal scorer from Kyle Gladwin. The boys put in a great performance but were out played by England losing 4-0 the following day.

U18 girls also travelled down to England and put in a determined performance but lost 3-0 on the first day.

The U16 squads took on England on home soil with the boys playing at the new pitch at Fettes College whilst the girls played at Peffermill.

The U16 girls had a thrilling first match where they went down 3-0 in the first 15 minutes as they were taken aback by the speed and power of England. The girls soon put that to rest and came out the second half full of resilience and were soon rewarded for their efforts by an excellent reverse stick strike by Hanna McKie. Charlotte Watson Scored with 10 minutes to go to bring the Scots within striking distance of earning a draw.

Game two, on Sunday morning, was an equal contest throughout, but without goals. Scotland matched their opponents in every department, until one minute from time when England scored, to win the contest 1 – 0.

Head coach Bill Robson couldn’t be prouder of his team and efforts through pout the year; ‘Scotland future is in good hands, if these performances are anything to go by.’

Just down the road U16 boys faced England at the new water based pitch at Fettes College. The first match saw Scotland come from behind to finish 5-3, goal scorers Ruairidh Grossart scoring two and Callum Mackenzie scoring the other. Scotland pressed the English but couldn't quite do enough to pull back a draw. The next day saw them face defeat of 8-0 to the strong England side.

Well done to the U16 girl’s development squad who played this weekend in friendly international matches against Ulster and HIP at Largs showing strong performance throughout.
