Scottish Under17 Squad
Congratulations to Galashiels Academy and Gala Wands players Gary Robertson and Ruairi Howarth who have been selected for the Scottish U17 development squad will spend an intensive fortnight at the facility in Valladolid in north-central Spain in early July Scotland U17 head coach Peter Laverie said: "Selection came through a variety of sources - from national selection fixtures, reports from age-grade coaches, exile camps and a trial game, and a national trials weekend at the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan."It was difficult to narrow down the squad from such a wide field this year and the standard of this key group is very high."
Both Gary and Ruairi have came up through the Gala Rugby pathway system both playing at The Mini Maroons, G.R.T,Galashiels Academy and Gala Wanderers.These two players are a fine example to all aspiring young rugby players and if you work hard the rewards are there and these two young lads fully deserve their selection. Good luck from all at Gala
