Scot Gemmill's Scotland Under-15 side enjoyed a successful trip to the Republic of Ireland, returning home unbeaten from their two matches in County Kerry.

Scotland played their Irish counterparts twice in three days, winning 3-1 on Friday evening thanks to strikes from Elliot Watt, Glenn Middleton and Jack Aitchison.

Sunday's contest was a much tighter affair, as Scotland rescued a draw with a late goal from Stephen Welsh. 

Gemmill's Scotland squad featured eight players from the Scottish FA's Performance Schools, a programme open to boys and girls and runs from S1 to S4.

The Scottish FA has employed seven full-time Elite Youth Coaches, who will have responsibility for the delivery of the programmes in each of the seven schools. They will be assisted when required by National Youth Team Coaches, club coaches, sports scientists and other specialist experts. The programme will also complement and supplement players’ club football, thus ensuring a player-centred approach that will give them the best chance to fulfil their potential.
