Scotland’s under-16 squad finished their mini-series with the UK Lions in style at Glasgow’s National Hockey Centre.

They saved the best to last and recorded a confidence-boosting 5-2 victory after 2-2 and 3-3 draws.

Inverleith player Charlie Jack, the team’s vice-captain, collected a glory treble in the big win with his club-mate Jake Inglis and Ben Carroll from Uddingston each collecting singles.

The Scots started quickly and build a 2-0 lead inside the first eight minutes and they eventually ran out worthy winners.

Edinburgh-based coach Chris Duncan was delighted with the win and said: “This was our best performance of the weekend.

“The boys have worked hard individually over the winter and it is great to have competitive games this early in the year.

“It has brought a lot of focus into our training and we move on from here with optimism.”
