MIDLOTHIAN youngster Lia Tweedie will achieve a lifetime’s ambition in April after being selected to represent Scotland as part of the Lloyds TSB U-15 girls’ international squad for the 2012 season.
The 14-year-old winger, who attends Beeslack Community High School, Penicuik, caught the eye playing for Hibernian girls this season and further impressed selectors this month at Ravenscraig Sports Facility where the national squad met up for their first training session together.
The 18-strong Scottish squad will primarily feature in the annual Bob Docherty Tournament, which this year takes place in Dublin between April 3 and 5, where Scotland will face regular home nation participants Wales, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, with both England and Holland also set to join proceedings.
