It's Scotland The Brave As Heaney Stars

Scotland won the Sky Sports Victory Shield on Friday, with Newcastle youngster Mackenzie Heaney involved

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Mackenzie Heaney helped Scotland end a 15 year wait to win the Victory Shield outright as they beat holders England 1-0 on Friday evening.

England had won the annual competition for each of the last 12 years, but the Newcastle youngster was involved as the Tartan Army finally ended the Young Lions' domination.

Celtic teenager Calvin Miller scored the only goal of the game after 28 minutes at Raith Rovers' Stark's Park as 14-year-old Heaney played the full game.

He wasn't even born when Scotland last won the trophy outright in 1998.

Although he hails from Walker in Newcastle, Heaney qualifies for Scotland through his grandfather.
