Head Coach Brian McLaughlin has named his first Under-17 squad of the new cycle, as Scotland face Switzerland in two preparation matches in Zurich later this month. 

Scotland take on the Swiss at the Sportanlage Stighag on Tuesday, 15 August before facing the same opposition at the same venue two days later. 

This camp will represent the first meet-up for this Under-17 side, with players all to be born in 2007 or later. They will aim to follow in the footsteps of the previous two Under-17 age group who both reached the European Championship Finals.

Under McLaughlin, Scotland reached the finals in Israel in 2022 and Hungary in 2023. 

Ahead of next year's finals in Cyprus, Scotland's qualifying campaign begins in October. Our Under-17s come up against Turkey, Belarus and Kazakhstan - with two emerging from each group. 

Several of these players represented Scotland last year in the Victory Shield, as the young Scots finished second behind the Republic of Ireland. While for some, this call-up will represent a first taste of international football.
