Scots Face Malaysian Manoeuvres



Scottish Coach, Dave Stott said: “The Asian style of play is aggressive and fast.  They have fast hands; short passing and they’re quick.  In a squad context this is a chance for our GB players to gain exposure to Asian skills while our junior players get the opportunity to interact with our more senior players.”


Thirteen of Scotland’s senior women along with three junior players will test their skills in the friendly match while their opponents prepare for an Olympic qualifier in Vancouver, Canada this April. The Scots will get their fair share of preparation, Scotland’s senior women’s Coach Keith Joss, who will be attending the game, explained: “After a few weeks of rest and recovery after winning the European Trophy, players from the senior squad will use this match to begin their push towards the first GB camp in three weeks time.”


Adding to Scotland’s objectives, Dave Stott continued: “We’ll also get to look at our juniors in different positions alongside our more experienced players. This match gives us more international experience and an early start to preparing for all types of competition, even the next Commonwealth Games.”


Malaysia face a variety of English clubs in four matches over four days before making their way to Edinburgh for the 18:30 start this Wednesday at Peffermill.  The last time Scotland played Malaysia was at the Commonwealth games in Melbourne 2006 with the Scots coming out on top 3-0.
