Scotland youth teams to play Wales over Easter weekend

Scotland U16 and U18 Boys’ and Girls’ squads will travel to Wales to play test series’ again Wales.

The matches will be played at Cwmbran Stadium and the National Hockey Centre in Cardiff.

For Scotland U18 Girls’ it’s a completely new team taking on the mantle from the squad that won the U18 EuroHockey Championship II in 2018, but it’s a young squad with huge potential.

Head Coach Keith Smith said, “We travel to Wales with a very young group, but one which we feel is exciting and bursting with potential. Out of a squad of 20, only our keepers Amber and Rachel have been capped at this level previously, and 17 of those who travel are eligible to play in this age group next season.

“As individuals, these games against Wales will be a great opportunity for the players to develop their understanding of the demands of U18 international hockey and, as a team, will allow them to begin to put some of our playing principles into practice in what promises to be a challenging, competitive environment.”
