The pair were part of the Scotland women's squad who faced Ireland in a double header in Belfast.

Scotland went down 5-1 and 4-1 against a top Ireland side ranked eight in the world.

However the training matches provided the Scots with some much needed pitch time after a long lay-off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and with the EuroHockey Championship on the horizon in Amsterdam next month.
