Three players from Inverness have been selected for the Scotland squad which will compete at the European Teams Championship in Switzerland.

Greg Lobban, Alasdair Prott and Martin Ross have been selected to play for Scotland at the European Teams Championships which will be held in Zurich next month.

The trio will be joined by Rory Stewart, Andrew Glen and John Meehan.

Scotland will be looking to win promotion to Division One after being relegated to Division Two last year.

Scottish Squash Elite Performance Coach Paul Bell said: “I am really looking forward to this years European Team Championships. The women’s team are back in the top division and I’m excited to see how they can compete against the top nations once again.

He added: “Despite the disappointment of relegation last season it has provided an opportunity in the men’s squad to bring in some new players with 3 players looking to win their first senior cap for Scotland.

“It will be strange playing a team event without Alan Clyne but this is a great chance for the younger players to step up and gain some valuable experience representing Scotland at a major team event.

“I believe the makeup of the squad provides us with a great opportunity to have a very successful event.”

In the Scotland women’s team includes Georgia Adderley, fresh off her fifth PSA win in Canada last month, and currently ranked a career high 32 in the world.

Also returning and hoping to build on last year’s success are world number 90 Alison Thomson and world number 156 Katriona Ross.

Ellie Jones completes the line-up, and will make her Scotland debut.

Scotland have a fine history in the European Teams Championship, as the fourth most successful side in the history of the men’s event and sixth most successful side in the history of the women’s event.

The European Teams Championship will take place in Zurich, Switzerland from Wednesday, May 1 to Saturday, May 4.
