Former Rothesay Academy pupil Jane Ross hit the target twice this week as Scotland’s women started their 2015 World Cup qualifying campaign with back-to-back wins.

Jane, who plays her club football for Vittsjö GIK in Sweden, scored the fourth goal in the Scots’ 7-2 win over the Faroe Islands at the Torsvollur Stadium on Sunday, and followed that up with the fifth in the 7-0 thrashing of Bosnia-Herzegovina at Fir Park in Motherwell on Thursday.

Among the 1,061 crowd backing the Scots at Thursday’s game was a travelling party from Bute, including Jane’s parents George and Katie.
