Anna Signeul has added three players to her initial 20-strong squad for the forthcoming International Challenge matches against Romania and Sweden.
 
Chloe Arthur, Vaila Barsley and Joelle Murray will join up with the squad when it gathers on Monday as the team enters the latest phase of its preparation for the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 finals in Netherlands.

 

“We are pleased to be able to call on these three players,” said Anna Signeul. “Vaila did very well in her debut against Belgium last month and we want to give her another opportunity to stake her claim for a place in the squad for the Euros.
 
“We are very happy to have Joelle return to fitness after missing the last match, while Chloe has done very well for Bristol during the spring and we are excited to have her in the squad."
 
One player who will not join the squad next week is Arsenal midfielder Kim Little, who ruptured an ACL in training last week.
 
Anna Signeul had hoped to name the 117-times capped playmaker as one of the three additions to the squad this week, but she is now set to miss this summer’s tournament following the injury.
 
“We are devastated for Kim to pick up a serious injury at such a bad time, and we wish her well in her recovery and hope to see her back in a Scotland jersey soon,” said Anna Signeul.
 
“The important thing for Kim now is to concentrate on returning to full fitness. She is young and will have the chance to represent Scotland at other major championships in the future.
 
“Losing a player like Kim is obviously upsetting for the team but we will continue to focus on our preparations for the Euros as planned to ensure that we make the nation proud.”
