The squad for the Scottish Students Women's squad for the 2017-18 season has been announced.
The announcement comes after a successful trial session at Oriam, Heriot-Watt University earlier this month. The women's side will be looking to build on a successful 2016-17 campaign, during which they secured a Home Nations tournament victory, with wins against Wales and England (pictured above, the squad with the competition trophy).
The squad is as follows:
Ciara Bonner - University of Stirling
Nicole Cairney - University of Edinburgh
Chloe Docherty - University of the West of Scotland
Rachel Donaldson - University of Stirling
Margaux Durand-Watson - University of Edinburgh
Demi Falconer - University of Stirling
Rebecca Foote - University of Stirling
Alison Lightfoot - University of St. Andrews
Chloe Logan - University of Stirling
Beth Macleod - University of Edinburgh
Beth McKay - University of Stirling
Darcy Molley - University of Strathclyde
Katy Morris - University of Stirling
Carly Noble - Edinburgh Napier University
Sorenza Orezzoli - City of Glasgow College
Charlotte Parker-Smith - University of Edinburgh
Kirsten Reilly - University of Stirling
Tegan Reynolds - University of Edinburgh
Ellie Simpson - University of Stirling
Eleanor Smith - University of Glasgow
Lucy Stanton - University of Edinburgh
On the announcement Coach Grant Scott said, "There was a really good standard at the trials and it’s great to have a number of returning players from the successful Home Nations team earlier in the year. I am further delighted to include players from a number of academic institutions as well. The staff team are looking forward to building a strong team mentality with the new group of players."
Team manager Florence Haines said, "This squad brings together a mixture of coaches and players with different football backgrounds and it is a brilliant dynamic I’m proud to be involved in. The International Challenge Matches should provide a real test to the squad as we build into next year’s Home Nations."
"We aim to provide the opportunity to students at both Colleges and Universities across the country a chance to represent Scotland. It gives the chance to further develop those who may have played age group international level or to offer players their first international representation."
