Past Players


Magnus Mackenzie and aaron Hickey make Scotland debuts

Congratulations to Magnus for overcoming the difficulties of a cancelled training programme, playing in very few games over the last 2 years and overcoming significant injury setbacks, to finally represent Scotland Professional Under 17s in two games against England and gaining rave reviews!

Congratulations to Aaron too who made his full Scotland debut against Poland in March 2022. A career that started in the midfield and at Grassroots and Celtic, has gone via the first team at Hearts, to starring in Seria A for Bologna as one of the most highly regarded left-backs in Italy!

We are very proud of both boys, who are pictured with a recent crop of Grassrooters on a recent visit.
