Scotland completed a clean sweep of their matches at the Small Countries Association (SCA) women’s tournament held this past weekend in Reykjavik, Iceland, to travel home with the gold medals around their neck.
On Sunday, the Scots secured first place in the final standing courtesy of a comprehensive 3-0 victory (25-10, 25-14, 25-12) in the matchup with their neighbours from Ireland. Scotland did only drop one set throughout the whole competition – as they did so in their opening match with hosts Iceland back on Friday.
The home favourites could be happy with their second place, which Iceland sealed after a 3-1 victory in their final matchup with the Faroe Islands (25-21, 23-25, 25-22, 25-15).
This was the first ‘senior’ international competition in a very long time for SCA women’s teams.
Both Iceland and the Faroe Islands are currently stepping up their efforts to grow the game and they will join forces to host a historic #EuroVolleyU16W Final Round come 2025 – the first such event ever hosted in any of these two countries.
