Leo selected for U17 Championship Qualifiers

9th October 2019

Following his participation in the training camp, Leo Watson has been called up for Scotland ahead of the UEFA Under-17 Championship Qualifiers.

The left-back travelled to Spain with Brian McLaughlin's side in late September to prepare for their qualifying fixtures.

He will now face Armenia, Iceland and Croatia this month in Stirling at the Forthbank Stadium. Entry is free for all fans.

If Scotland qualify, they will head to the 2020 UEFA UEFA European Under-17 Championship, held in Estonia next summer.

Leo, who signed his first pro contract in June, has previously played for Scotland's under-16 side.

He made his first-team debut in a friendly against Arbroath during this year's pre-season campaign - just ten days after inking his new deal.

He has featured thrice for Andy Kirk's reserves so far this year - including the 3-1 Challenge Cup loss to Waterford where Leo scored the Jambos' only goal.
