Hockey - 22. November 2007.

Women's Squad Selected for Test Series at Forthbank Opening


Talking about this test series, coach Joss commented: "We ultimately want to win more matches than we lose. This will be a chance for us to bring in some new players and see what they can add but also to try some different combinations."

Forward Alisa Robertson is getting a double dose of benefits from the new pitch as she works for Active Stirling. She commented: "It will be great to have a centrally located water based pitch that's conveniant. Hopefully this will boost hockey in the area."

On facing Ireland she said: "We had close matches with Ireland over the summer so it will be a challenging series. Both nations have played each other so many times, you could say there’s a bit of a friendly rivalry. We're always up for playing Ireland."

Wearing her Active Stirling hat, Alisa gave some insight into the pitch opening activities: "The ceremony on Friday night is phase one of Active Stirling's launch of the new sports village, it's a giant step forward for us. Active Stirling want to invite everyone out to enjoy the festivities and watch some great hockey. Hopefully we'll get people from every club out to celebrate."

Scotland beat Ireland 4-1 this summer along with all their other opponents to win the Celtic Cup.

It won't only be the women breaking in the new Stirling pitch.


The women start things off Friday evening at 6:00 with the men following at 8:00. The second half of the men's match will be broadcast live for the first time ever on BBC Sportsound.

As for the rest of the weekend games, the women play at 15:00 on Saturday and 11:00 on Sunday. The men's play at 17:00 on Saturday and 13:00 on Sunday.

Make sure you're there to support Scotland this weekend and to get a glimpse of the new pitch and sport village.
