Six Scots have been named in the Great Britain Under-20 women’s squad of 20 to contest the European B Championship in the Bulgarian Capital of Sofia from July 3 to 13.

They are Robyn Lewis (Loughborough Riders), Claire Paxton (Colorado Christian University), Hannah Peacock (Edinburgh Kool Kats) Sarah Thomson (Northumbria University), Hilary Wood (Polonia Phoenix) and Yhana Van Wees (Tayside Musketeers).

The tournament is immediately before the senior women’s European Small Nations Championship in Austria in which several of the players could also be involved and the clash is likely to cause a major headache for Scotland coach Ben Gunn in naming his final squad.

GB face the prospect of an exhausting tournament with an opening fixture against Norway before games against Lithuania, Bulgaria, Germany, Portugal, Bosnia-Herzogovina, Romania, Hungary and Israel with only two rest days on July 6 and 10.
