Scotland's challenge at the European Men's and Women's Team Championships came to an end in Basel last night.

The men's team won their final match 3-2 against Belgium to follow up their 5-0 victory against Iceland and finish second in Group 3 behind England with two wins from three matches. But their record in the group stages was not quite good enough to take one of the two runners-up places for the knockout quarter-finals.

Scotland's women saw their hopes of progressing from Group 4 dashed yesterday with the 3-2 defeat by Russia. In fact all three of their matches had a 3-2 scoreline with an opening win over Belgium, when Imogen Bankier won her 50th cap, and in the 3-2 defeat by hosts Switzerland.

Squads: Men: Robert Blair, Martin Campbell, Matthew Carder, Patrick MacHugh, Kieran Merrilees, Paul Van Rietvelde. Women: Imogen Bankier, Jillie Cooper, Rebekka Findlay, Kirsty Gilmour, Caitlin Pringle.

Quarter-finals
Men: Ukraine v (2) Germany, (1) Denmark v (4) Russia, (6) France v (3) England, Finland v Sweden.
Women: (5) England v (2) Germany, (3) Bulgaria v Ukraine, France v (4) Russia, (1) Denmark v Spain
