Scotland Under-19 head coach Pauline Hamill has named her squad for the upcoming UEFA Women's Under-19s European Championship, in what will be the first UEFA finals tournament to be held on Scottish soil since 1970.
An exciting 20-strong playing group will take on the best in Europe later this month, with the majority of the squad plying their respective trades with SWPL sides; Hibs and Glasgow City provide three players apiece to the squad, the most of any club side.
Drawn alongside the Netherlands, Norway and five-time champions France, a top two finish in the group would secure a semi final berth for Hamill's side, alongside a spot at next year's FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup.
The tournament kicks off on Tuesday 16th July, with matches taking place at St Mirren Park in Paisley, Glasgow's Firhill Stadium, Forthbank Stadium in Stirling and Perth's McDiarmid Park.
Pauline Hamill, Scotland Women's Under-19s head coach, told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We are all really looking forward to the Euros starting in just two weeks time.
"Preparations have gone well and we've got a young group of players desperate to do well on the big stage.
"We're in a tough group but it's a challenge I know the players will relish. Women's football is thriving in Scotland and we want to be a part of that buzz this summer.
"The players can't wait to play in front of a loud home crowd and hopefully the country gets behind us, like they did for the ĎA' squad's World Cup debut in France.
"Over the course of July we want to continue to help inspire the next generation and also provide a platform for these young players to take the next step in their careers and continue to progress."
