Scots’ youngsters lose out to England
Both Scotland U16 sides found the going tough in the first of
two matches against England at Bellahouston todat.
Amidst blustery conditions, the girls’ under 16 match against
England got off on a sad note with a minute`s silence for the
untimely death of squad player Emma Broad last weekend.
In the game the Scots girls survived to half time with the match
still goalless. However, the second half proved more testing for
the youngsters thereafter as England took control, securing a 4-0
win, including a Kitty McWhirter hat-trick.
In the boy’s encounter, it didn’t get much easier for Scotland,
and the youngsters found themselves two goals down within 21
minutes. However, in 28 minutes the Scots were back in the
hunt when Perthshire`s Murdo Elwin pulled a goal back.
Unfortunately in the second half the English took control and
scored a further four goals for a comfortable 6-1 win.
Both sides are back in action tomorrow, with both sides playing
the second match of their series against England.
