It is also the first Scotland U21s men’s squad to compete in the European top division since 2012, and they will aim to be the first Scotland Men’s U21 team to retain their status in the top division since 2002.
At the EuroHockey Championships in Ghent on 24-30 July Scotland feature alongside top-ranked competition in Belgium; the Netherlands; Germany; England; France; Russia; and Spain, with the top six reaching the World Cup.
Head Coach Graham Moodie said, ‘Following exams we’ve had a decent month of training together and we’re looking forward to seeing what progress we have made. Wales will be a good test and starts the main games phase of our programme.’
