Scots Face Prem One Champions

The Scotland Under 19 team will take on Scottish Hydro Electric Premier One champions Boroughmuir in a training fixture tomorrow night (Tuesday 5 February) at Hawthornden, home of Lasswade RFC (kick-off 7pm).  Supporters are welcome to come along and watch some of Scotland’s emerging talent as they step-up preparations for their international against Italy U19 later this month.

Scotland face the Italians in Milan on Saturday 23 February.

Scotland Under 19 head coach, Peter Wright, said: “Tuesday night will be a good opportunity to see how the boys shape up against a really strong and competitive bunch of guys. We’ve assembled a good squad this year and we’re looking forward to the game against Italy in a few weeks’ time.

“We’ve had a few players promoted into the Scotland U20 team so it’s also a chance for some other boys to prove that they’re good enough to be successful in a Scotland jersey.”
