Scotland U19 squads to play England announced

The squads for this weekend’s Scotland U19s boys’ and girls’ matches against England have been announced. The matches are the first games to be played in a Great Britain and Ireland 4-nations tournament, which is being held following the disappointment of having to withdraw from the under 19 EuroHockey A Division, being held in Valencia later this month, due to Covid restrictions.

Scotland open their programme with home fixtures, which will be streamed live on Facebook Live, against England at Peffermill this weekend. On Saturday 10 July Scotland U19 Girls’ will play England at 1pm before Scotland U19 boys’ play England at 3pm. Then on Sunday 11 July Scotland U19 Girls play England at 10:30am and Scotland U19 Boys play England at 12:30.

Unfortunately, the ongoing restrictions due to Covid-19 means only parents and close family members are permitted to spectate at the match. However, in an exciting new venture Scottish Hockey is piloting an affordable pay-per-view live stream with QTV on Facebook Live. To subscribe to the live stream head over to Scottish Hockey’s Facebook page with prices set as £6.99 for one day or £9.99 for both days.

A strong Scotland U19 boys’ squad has been announced for the matches. Head coach Andrew Brogden said, “It seems like a lifetime ago that we last played an international fixture at this level and whilst I’m sure the road that this squad has travelled over these last 18 months is not the one they would have chosen; I’m absolutely certain that the work they’ve put in individually and collectively over that time will bear fruit over these next three weeks’

‘Myself and the rest of the coaching team are really excited to finally watch the squad play their brand of hockey over the course of this month and I’m sure that when we are travelling back from Belfast in a few weeks’ time they’ll be proud that both on and off they pitch they brought to life their collective aspirations of ‘Rocking the Boat’”

Following impressive performances in the recent U18 Academy Series, Skye Waugh, Anna McWilliams and Molly Morris have been added to the Scotland U19 girls’ squad, and are joined by Ellie Stott who returns to the programme after taking some time out. Georgia Crooks, Nina Constable and Emma Fraser have withdrawn due to other commitments.

Scotland U19 girls’ Head Coach Keith Smith said, “While we were all disappointed it wasn’t possible to take part in this year’s rearranged European Championships, there’s been a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes to line up the Four Nations at such short notice, and we’re grateful to all who have made that possible.

“The developmental nature of the competition allows us to try and offer appropriate opportunities for international experience right across the squad, while still ensuring some challenging fixtures. Instead of being pitched straight back into the stresses and strains of selection – and the pressured environment of the tournament itself – this removes some of that immediate pressure for the girls, which I think is positive after everything else they’ve had to deal with over the last year.

“Now they can simply focus on gaining more experience and improving at this level, while beginning to stake a claim for a place in the U21 squad ahead of the Junior Europeans Championships in Belgium in 2022.”
