PERTH-BORN Lana Clel­land, who played for the Fair City’s Letham Girls, net­ted Scot­land women’s first goal in their 3-0 friendly suc­cess against Hun­gary in Bu­dapest.

Clel­land, who has hit nine goals in two games this sea­son for her club side, Ital­ians Tav­agnacco, put the Scot­land women one up in 15 min­utes.

Manch­ester City pair Claire Em­slie and Jane Ross net­ted the other goals — the l at­ter scor­ing for Scot­land for the 51st time.

It was a win­ning start for new Scot­land coach Shel­ley Kerr, formerly head coach of Low­land League men’s out­fit Stir­ling Univer­sity.
