Thistles Return with Double Victory

December 6, 2021

The Scottish Thistles impressed in their first home international test matches in over two years, with victories over Barbados Bajan Gems at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow.

In front of large home crowds the Thistles dominated from the start in both matches, building early leads and not relenting to win 74-32 and 74-35 on Thursday and Friday respectively.

It was the first chance to see the Thistles under Head Coach Tamsin Greenway, who would have been pleased with the quality of performance and strength in depth, with debuts to four players including Caitlin Pringle, a feature of the Team Scotland badminton squad at Glasgow 2014.

Full match reports can be found on the Netball Scotland website, with both matches available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

Scotland are currently ranked 8th in the world rankings with Barbados 13th – a top 12 ranking position should be enough to take the Thistles to Birmingham 2022.
