District And National Squads 2017

For a long number of years, 100 to be exact, Inverleith have produced so many talented youngsters, and 2017 is no different. In the press this month for their representations are:

  • Jessica Smith
  • Katie Swanson
  • Grace Drummond
  • Sophie Hinds
  • Itska Hooftman
  • Jennifer Veitch
  • Harry O’Connor
  • Magnus Harkness

Scotland U16’s came calling for Jessica, Katie, Grace and Sophie who have all had strong seasons at Inverleith this year and have each progressed enormously in their respective positions, learning new skills and regularly impacting games. Many congratulations to all four girls and we wish them well four the upcoming tournament.

Thought to be the best of the Scottish Districts, Itske and Jennifer both represented the Girls U14 East inter-districts team last month. Both girls thoroughly deserved their selection and did brilliantly throughout the tournament held at Peffermill in May.

Harry and Magnus are future stars of the game. They also represented the East of Scotland inter district team for the U14 Boys. The boys went on to win the entire tournament with plenty of talent on show.

Well done to all eight of our junior district and national representatives, its great to see so much purple in Scottish white and blue. The purple future is bright.
