DUNFERMLINE will be represented at another major football tournament after Robyn McCafferty was named in Scotland's under-19 European Championship squad.

The Woodmill High School pupil, who only turned 16 at the weekend, was one of 20 players selected on Tuesday by head coach Pauline Hamill for the competition, which kicks-off on July 16.

Scotland are hosting the event, which also features England, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Norway and the Netherlands, and the Spartans centre back said on social media that she was "over the moon to be selected", and added that it was "going to be an unreal experience and I can't wait to get started with the team".

Robyn, who is one of the youngest members of the squad, commented: "It means the world to me, obviously with me still being so young.

"It was a bit of a shock and to be representing Scotland is a dream come true for me just now.

"It's something that, as soon as I got into football, I wanted to do and to be able to play for them now is a dream come true.

"It's just such a proud moment for me and definitely the best so far."

Pars fan Robyn, who also captains Scotland's under-17 side, played with Hibernian for nine years at various age levels before moving to Spartans before Christmas last year.

She has been featuring for her new club in the Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League One – the country's top division of women's football – and even managed to find the net in a game with her former club back in April.

As well as starring for the national side's under-17s in the Elite Round of the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship in March – in which they lost to eventual tournament winners Germany, as well as Norway and the Republic of Ireland – Robyn was invited to training camps with the under-19 squad.

That came after she, alongside Spartans team-mate Michaela Mcalonie, who has also been named in the squad, starred in a video produced by FIFA ahead of the Women's World Cup, in which Dunfermline-born Caroline Weir featured for Scotland, that explored the impact the senior squad has had on inspiring the next crop of international stars, as well as fitting their training schedules around their school week.

Speaking to Press Sport while training with the under-19s, she said: "It's a big step up from under-17s but the girls are great; they make you feel comfortable and part of the team.

"I was quite nervous but excited as well, and I have enjoyed it."

Scotland will take on France, Norway and the Netherlands during the tournament, with their opener against Les Bleus taking place on July 16 at St Mirren Park in Paisley (7.30pm).

They then play Norway at Firhill, Glasgow, on Friday, July 19, at 6.15pm, before concluding their group matches against the Dutch in Paisley on Monday, July 22, at 6.15pm.

Meanwhile, Inverkeithing High School pupil Caley Gibb, who made her senior Hibernian debut in May, has also moved to Spartans in time for the second half of the SWPL season.
