Exciting times are afoot for High School hockey with involvement in the latter stages of national cup competitions, as well as seven girls recently being selected to represent Scotland hockey squads for the coming year.

Old Anniesland played host to a Scottish Cup quarter final victory for the 2nd/3rd Year side yesterday - they will be looking forward to an upcoming semi-final encounter after achieving a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Fettes College of Edinburgh.

Meanwhile, the 1st XI side will also be hoping to reach a Scottish Cup semi-final as they take on The Mary Erskine College in the U18 Scottish Cup quarter final. However, the team currently have more pressing matters...they will be competing under the floodlights of Glasgow Green on Tuesday in the BP Cup Final where they will take on St Aloysius' College for the right to be crowned BP Cup champions for 2017.

If you can, make sure you get along to support the girls - the match begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday 5th December.
