Scotland have finished second behind Republic of Ireland in the 2016 Victory Shield following a win, a draw and a loss in the tournament at Oriam in Edinburgh.

In Scotland’s opening match they took on Northern Ireland with Taylor Wilson opening the scoring after 18 minutes before Zac Butterworth tucked the ball away late on to secure a 2-0 win.

Billy Gilmour impressed and started Tuesday’s draw against Wales. The Scots, coached by Brian McLaughlin, started brightly and led 2-0 at the break thanks to a Jamie Semple brace but Wales hit back with two goals of their own to secure the draw.

During the match, 13-year-old Karamoko Demble made his first appearance for Scotland Under-16s coming off the bench.

Scotland went into the final match of the tournament against Republic of Ireland, knowing a win would allow them to top the group but they lost out 3-0 to end a promising week for the Scottish youngsters.

All of the matches were streamed live on the Scotland National Team Facebook and YouTube pages.
