Edinburgh’s Faye Leggett is set to become the youngest player for almost 30 years to represent Scotland in major competition after being named in Scotland’s team for the European Championships in Luxembourg from September 12-17. Leggett, just 14, has been included in Scotland’s six-strong team for the event after reaching the last 64 of the European Youth Championships in Portugal last month. Seventeen year-old Calum Morrison, also from Edinburgh, will also be playing in his first major senior championships with Aberdeen’s Colin Dalgleish spearheading the men’s team. “Faye and Calum are exciting prospects for the future and it is fantastic to see our young players coming through,” said Richard Yule, Chief Operating Officer of Table Tennis Scotland, “There is a good blend of youth and experience in the team.” Scotland’s men have been drawn against Bosnia, Wales, Kosovo and Macedonia in the team event and Scotland’s women take on Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Wales in their opening group. Scotland team (European Championships, Luxembourg, Sep 12-17): Men: C Dalgleish (Aberdeen), N Cameron (Elgin), C Morrison (Edinburgh); Women: G Edwards (Blairgowrie), L Elliott (Glasgow), F Leggett (Edinburgh).
