After a trial process with over 45 players signing up, Scottish Student Sport is excited to announce an initial squad selection of 15 students for the SSF Women’s National Squad programme. Picking additional players will be selected at a later date and those selections will be confirmed in 2017. It was fantastic to see 12 College and University institutions represented at the trials, highlighting the quality of women’s student football across Scotland. We wish the very best to those players not selected and we encourage them to get involved in BUCS and Scottish Student Sport during their time studying if they aren’t already.
‘We were really pleased with the desire everyone showed during the trial process and I would like to thank SWPL and SWFL clubs for being really supportive of the programme. The quality of players in Scotland currently in education is at a fantastic level and there is an abundance of talent. All the staff are looking forward to the build up to April and showing what Scotland has to offer when we compete in the Home Nations.’ Thomas Craig, Head Coach
