Scotland kick off the upcoming internationals with a friendly against Australia at Renfrew Juniors ground on the 25th January. Their opening game of the Centenary Shield will be against old rivals England at St Mirren Park on the 3rd March, before playing away to Wales and Northern Ireland on the 16th March and 31st March respectively. The final fixture of the competition will be at home to Republic of Ireland, at Lesser Hampden on 6th April.
Current holders England have won three of the last five tournaments, with Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland winning the other two. Scotland last tasted victory in this competition in 2011, when they finished as joint winners with Northern Ireland, and will be looking to repeat that feat again this time.
