Defender Jamie Hamilton and Striker Andy Winter, who have 15 Premiership appearances between them so far this season, have been selected for the Scotland u19 squad who head south to play England in two friendly internationals behind closed doors at St George’s Park this week.

Both players have been regulars in the Scotland youth set up in recent seasons.

Academy Director George Cairns said, “both have been regulars in our first team matches this season, and can gain further experience by playing in these two games against England.  It’s further recognition for what we do here and I am delighted for them.”
