Selkirk hockey player Emily Newlands turned out for Scotland under 21s last weekend in two games against India.

Newlands, along with Claire Hill of Kelso High, have both been selected for the European Under 18 Championships in Santander, Spain, in July.

Borders hockey development officer Janet Jack said: “Their success is a reflection of all the hard work they put in on the pitch and in their training.”
