TEENAGE hockey star Sarah Robertson scored her first senior Scotland goal in her country’s 4-1 defeat against South Africa in Glasgow.

The 18-year-old student at Edinburgh University finished off a solo run by Nikki Kidd, but could not stop her team falling to another heavy defeat against the Olympics-bound Africans.

Meanwhile, fellow Souter Emily Newlands has been called up to the Scotland under-18s squad for a series of forthcoming internationals.
