Scotland to face France in European quarter-final

Rachel Andrew and Adam Pringle led the way again for Scotland as they convincingly beat Croatia at the European U17 Team Championships to send them top of Group 6.

The Scotland Team maintained their unbeaten start to the Championship – following victories over Austria and Slovakia - with a comfortable 4-1 win over Croatia.

Andrew and Pringle got Scotland off to a perfect start as they beat Josip Meglić and Inga Sadaić 21-17, 21-16 in just 22 minutes.

But things did not go all Scotland’s way as Luka Ban beat Alastair Campbell in their singles match 21-15, 21-16 to level things.

But Rachel Sugden put the Scots ahead again with a 21-19, 21-13 victory in her singles match against Ira Misir.

And the team’s lead was extended further when Pringle was back on court, this time with Joshua Apiliga, and they beat Josip Meglić and Borna Vadlja 21-15, 21-6.

The evening was rounded off by Andrew who returned to action with Rachel Cameron in the final match and they beat Ira Misir and Inga Sadaić 21-10, 21-15 to give Scotland a 4-1 win overall.

The victory over Austria means that Scotland progress from their group and will face France on Friday.
