Members of the squad, joined by Mrs Anderson and Mrs Baxter, met on Zoom for an end of season awards ceremony in which highlights and talking points were relived and prizes were - remotely - presented.

The event, which was organised by captain Isla McRobbie, assisted by Lucy Robertson, also featured a Q&A session with Scotland Women's hockey captain Kareena Cuthbert, who provided the girls with plenty of inspiration for when they can return to the field.

Isla said, "It was really an honour to have Kareena join our awards night, sharing with us her wisdom and motivational energy about hockey. Inspiring both myself and the girls for when we finally return to the pitch.

“With the season ending so early, it was great for sixth years to get the opportunity to say goodbye and good luck and also a chance as a team to celebrate the improvements we achieved this year.”
