Scotland Senior Women Selected for EuroHockey Trophy

The Trophy is the biggest competition of the year and takes places in Lithuania 1st-9th September.  The squad is gearing up for the event by attending a Training Camp in Poznan Poland 16th August-19th August.




After selections were announced, Coach Keith Joss commented: “Now we can get down to the nuts and bold of what works best on the pitch when.  The squad selection is a reflection of how hard players have worked and the process of recent squad selections shows how much depth we are starting to build up.”


Joss explained how going to Poland fits the bill in preparation for Lithuania:  “Poland is an Eastern European team and their style of play will suit the kind of completion we expect to see in Lithuania, so that’s the logic behind training in Poznan.”


After Poland, the squad heads to Siauliai aiming to get promoted to the EuroHockey Championship in 2009. Coming off a fantastic scoring run which took the Celtic Cup in three straight wins, the squad is feeling confident. The scoring run included beating Ireland 4-1, Wales 7-1, and France 6-0 in the final.


Reflecting on the Celtic Cup performance but looking to the Europeans, player Emma Rochlin said: “We were pleased to have stamped our authority on Wales, who will compete in the European 'C' division and against France who we are likely to come up against in a cross over game at the European Trophy. Psychologically it was important to gain the upper hand.”


Coach Joss said: “We hope to carry momentum from the Celtic Cup into Lithuania, every tournament is a new tournament but certainly we want to maintain the high we’re on.”


Although the Celtic Cup was a good boost of confidence Emma Rochlin added, “There is still plenty of work to be done we haven’t had flawless performances, but scoring 17 goals in three games was something to be proud of and we are looking to carry that forward to Poland and Lithuania.”
