East Ren pair Kirsty Maclean and Monica Forsyth were part of Scotland under-15s school side which took on Wales in two friendlies last month.

The pair, who attend Barrhead High and St Ninian’s High respectively, were part of the Scots team who won both games, with the young Scottish side winning the first tie 3-1, and the second 3-0 just days later.

In the first game which took place in Llandudno FC in north Wales, both teams started positively, with the first real chance in the game dropping to the Welsh.

As the ball broke kindly in the area from a misplaced clearance the Scots keeper Alicia Yates saved well.

This great save lifted the Scots who were now finding their feet.

As the Scots settled into their attacking game and it was only a matter of time before the deadlock was broken.

Rebecca McAllister, who had been working tirelessly on the right hand side, opened the scoring with a powerful left foot drive from 20 yards, after a cross from the left by Hutchison had beaten all of the Welsh defenders.

Ellie Jai Reid used her pace to outstrip the defence and fire a powerful shot low into the net for the second and fully deserved goal.

Easdon was now steadying the ship in the orthodox left fullback role as she pushed her opponent back towards her own goal.

At this stage in proceedings Wales were finding it difficult to get out of their own half as the Scots employed a pressing game which brought about several corners and it was this tactic that paid dividends in the 51st minute, when Eilidh Adams prodded in a third goal from a dangerous Reid corner from the right.

There was a small consolation for the Welsh seven minutes later as the swirling wind confused the defenders and attackers together but the bounce of the ball favoured the Welsh striker who knocked the ball home.

But Scotland were able to see out the victory in the end.

Their second game took place at Cefn Druids FC days later, as the Welsh looked for revenge for the previous defeat.

But after some early pressure from Wales, Scotland were able to comfortably see out the game, winning 3-0.

Wales almost scored in the fifth minute when the dangerous striker rattled the post with a great shot.

This was a let off for the Scots, and they made sure to make it count and scored not long after.

Forsyth and Kate Nicolson had settled into the central midfield engine house and it was Nicolson who set off on a driving run through the midfield.

This positive attacking drive opened up space to play in Pennman to let fly from the right hand side of the box.

The Welsh keeper did well to block her effort, but the ever-alert Potter was following up to net the rebound from close in.

A clever reverse ball from Potter provided a magnificent through ball to Hutchison whose powerful finish left the keeper helpless in the second half.

Bayley Hutchison’s strength was causing the Welsh defence all sorts of problems and the striker’s endeavours were rewarded again in the 50th minute when she dispossessed the Welsh centre half just outside the penalty area and powered her way through to thump home her second, and Scotland’s third goal, and saw out the rest of the game.

FULL SQUAD: Yates, Baillie, Broadrick, Easdon, P McAllister, R McAllister, McCafferty, Pennman, Forysth, Maclean, Nicolson, Gilmour, Reid, Adams, Hutchison, McQuillan, Potter, Munro.
