Scotland's other national stadium
Published : 14 Feb 2013 18:51:35
Scotland's under-21s will be returning to Paisley after St Mirren Park was chosen as the national side's home ground for their upcoming European Championship qualifying campaign.
Greenhill Road held all of the under-21s' home qualifiers for the 2013 championships and they finished second in their group, just missing out on a play-off place to Holland. That run saw them go unbeaten in Paisley and that, combined with the good facilities and location, has seen the SFA decide to repeat the trick.
The first home qualifier will be next month against Luxembourg with games against Slovakia and Georgia to come later in the year. The final home game will be against Holland next spring.
Supporters in other parts of the country have, perhaps justifiably complained, but from a Saints perspective this can only be good news - as long as it doesn't wreck the pitch!
