Scotland head coach Jen Wilson has chosen a mix of youth and experience in her squad for the upcoming EuroHockey Championship.

The Scots go up against the Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Austria in Group B at the competition in Glasgow.

Victory would secure promotion to the top tier of European hockey.

"Winning is absolutely our main goal. We want to leave here with promotion back to the A Division," Wilson told BBC Scotland.

"The players feel they can play in that division and I support them with that. They can be real contenders within it."

Four players return from Great Britain action - Sarah Robertson, Amy Costello, Nicola Cochrane and Charlotte Watson, who recently made her GB debut in Japan.
