International Call Ups

PostedOctober 30, 2019

Every now and again you get an unexpected privilege at Central Park. One such is when a letter arrives advising of an international call up.

Now these have been few and far between over the last 85 years or so but of course recently we had Chris Hamilton and Connor Smith, our loanees from Hearts, both being called up for the Scotland under-19 and under-18 teams respectively. It was a great thrill I am sure for both of the lads to wear the dark blue jersey but it was also an honour for Cowdenbeath FC to see its name listed in the player line-ups.

Congratulations go out to both Chris and Connor, local lads from Kelty and Cowdenbeath respectively. Chris (front left) featured prominently in the Scotland side that topped its group in the European under 19 Championship Qualifying. Many will have seen him on TV starring as Scotland registered a fine 1-0 win over Germany. Earlier Connor (back right) featured in a three match tournament in Istanbul where Scotland were unbeaten in three games v Angola, Cameroon and Paraguay.
