Under-16 squad named for Victory Shield

Tuesday, 10 October 2017


James Grady has named his squad for the Victory Shield later this month where Scotland will play Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.

 

The tournament is steeped in history, originating in 1925 before being revived in 1946 with England previously participating.

 

Scotland have experienced success at the tournament having won the trophy 17 times.

 

The competition has acted as a starting point for many established international players.

 

Darren Fletcher was a member of the Scotland team in 1999 that won the Victory Shield at Peterborough (1-0) against England.

 

Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor and Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher also played their part in the tournament in their youth.

 

The last time Scotland lifted the trophy was four years ago.

 

Scotland go into the tournament having won an international tournament in the summer when Scotland beat England, Qatar and Uruguay, scoring 11 goals without reply.

 

Scotland finished third last year.
