McBain not only plays for Fury’s under-18 side but is also in the club's senior women's team.

An aggressive and athletic player, she has been Fury's top scorer in the SBC junior league, averaging 12.7 points per game.

Shand is the Fury under-18 captain, and plays point guard in the Falkirk club's talented junior side that have won the Scottish Cup this season and finished joint-top of the SBC junior league - just losing out on a cup and league double by head to head results with winners Stirling Knights.

Low completes the Fury trio and the forward has been a key player in Fury's campaign this season.
