Signeul names Scotland Finals squad
 Women's Football Scotland International News - 1 Jul 2017
Anna Signeul has announced her squad ahead of taking Scotland to their first ever major championships, Euro 2017, this summer.
Signeul has named a 23-player squad which will meet this weekend ahead of taking on Republic of Ireland on Friday at Stark's Park, kick off 7.30pm, and then flying out to the Netherlands the following week to prepare for the opening match of the tournament against England on Wednesday 19th July.
Defenders Vaila Barsley and Sophie Howard are both included, having been involved in the last two squad gatherings.
Barsley, aged 29, was born in England and her mother is Scottish. Playing in Sweden for Eskilstuna United, she is team mates with Fiona Brown and has played for England Under-17s in the past. She is a strong, agile defender and has been capped three times.
Also a defender, 23-year-old Sophie Howard plays for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and the German born centre back is eligible for Scotland through her Scottish grandfather. She made her debut against Belgium in April and featured in the recent 1-0 defeat to Sweden.
Gemma Fay has been named in the squad and will make her 200th appearance for Scotland the next time she plays.
Hibernian trio Joelle Murray, Kirsty Smith and Rachel McLauchlan are included after recently helping Hibernian Ladies to a 4-1 win over Celtic to lift the SWPL Cup for the second successive year.
Leanne Crichton made her 50th appearance for her country against Romania and will travel to the Netherlands, along with Jane Ross who scored her 50th goal for Scotland in the same match, at Falkirk Stadium.
Jenny Beattie has been ruled out of the tournament with an ankle injury while Kim Little and Lizzie Arnot are out with anterior cruciate ligaments injuries, whilst Emma Mitchell will also miss the tournament.
Anna Signeul said: "This is an incredibly exciting time for Scottish women's football and I'm delighted to name the squad today.
"It's a strong squad with a great mix of youth and experience. All the players have worked incredibly hard to reach this stage and deserve to play at the Euros.
"This year we have had the benefit of playing nine games which has helped build a unity within the group and the players are all focused on that first game against England.
"Before that, we take on Republic of Ireland at Stark's Park and we're looking forward to playing in front a big crowd to give the players the perfect send off.
"The recent injury to Jenny Beattie is a blow and while all the players are gutted that she, Lizzie Arnot and Kim Little are out, it will add to our determination to do well for them as well as the entire country."
