Under 17 Scotland


The U17 squad season runs from June to April.  For this season’s pre –season, we ran a summer programme which gave the players weekly training during the summer holidays.  During the season we now run monthly weekend training camps which may include court training, match play or team building opportunities and also the development league. Each season they will take part in the U17 European championships which involves our home nations in the performance section of the event.

Previous Netball Europe results:

2018 – Bronze
2017 – Bronze
2016 – Silver
2015 – Silver
2014 – Bronze

Scotland’s under 17’s have returned home from from the Netball Europe Under 17’s Championships in Huddersfield, England.  Our #FutureThistles returned home having secured a 3rd place (Bronze) victory.  All 12 athletes took to the court over the weekend, securing wins against both Northern Ireland and the UAE.

The team took part in 4 games across the 3 days, with the first being against Wales at 12pm on Friday. This was a tightly contested match with Wales just pipping Scotland for the win, full time score of Scotland 46 – Wales 55. Their second match against the UAE was at 7pm that same day. Scotland’s U17’s looked in charge from the get-go, with a half time score of Scotland 35 – UAE 16. Their good form carried them through to achieve their 1st victory of the #NEU17CHAMPS, final score Scotland 72 – UAE 30. Saturday brought the teams third match of the competition, this time against Northern Ireland. A well-rested team took to the court at 5pm and left with their 2nd win of the competition, final score Scotland 57 – Northern Ireland 33. The weekends concluding match seen our Scottish U17’s take on England U17’s. This was a hotly anticipated game with both sides having secured convincing victories over the weekend.
