Scotland Women Bag Bronze

Scotland Women capped off a remarkable week at the FIH Champions Challenge in Dublin by winning the Bronze Medal match courtesy of a 4-3 penalties win over Spain.

It turned out to be a double celebration for the Kukri kitted squad too, as Laura Bartlett was named Player of the Tournament by the FIH officials.

It was Bartlett herself who coolly beat the Spanish goalkeeper to score the winning goal in a dramatic penalty shoot-out after the teams were tied at 2-2 in normal time.

The first round of penalties had ended 3-3, before Scots' goalkeeper Abi Walker prevented the Spanish forward from finding the net, and up stepped Olympian Bartlett to give Scotland their best finish in a world level tournament in decades.

Gordon Shepherd and his squad can take immense pride from the occasion. They were seeded to finish last in the tournament and came away with a number of scalps over the last seven days.

The additional bonus will be that Scotland`s status in the world rankings is bound to improve from 21st place, as all the other nations are placed from 9th to 15th. Go Scotland!
