Four Warriors Make Club History by making Scotland A

posted 5 Apr 2013, 23:01 by Aberdeen Warriors
Four senior players from the Warriors have made club history to be the first players to be selected for Scotland A Squad in the 2013 Home Nations Championship.
Aaron Robertson, Stuart Gray, Dan Retter and Ali O'Connor (sponsored by Speakerbox PR) were the 4 players who managed to get into the 30 man train on squad. Dan Retter the youngest of the four says "Its a dream come true being selected into the 30 man squad, I am extremely greatful for all the help and support that my family, friends and club have shown but I now need to train harder and work on my game to ensure I stay in the squad"
The Warriors now have 11 players from the senior Squad representing Scotland at various Levels in the 2013 season. Jordan Robertson (younger brother of Aaron), Damien Gennochio, Gavin Reed, Mitchel Scott, Carwyn Walker, Bobby Stables and Aidan Holland are the others who are all in the pathway programmes. 
"It was only a matter of time in my opinion before some of the players got drafted into the squad especially with the way our youth players are developing" Said Chairman Craig Parslow. The club keeps growing and more and more talent keep shoing up. 2013 will be an exciting year for the club and I cant wait for the Season to start on May 4th where we will host the first of 2 Aberdeen Magic Weekends and hopefully kick off with the double win at home. I know that the Titans have been getting stronger each season and have been working extremely hard in the off season I'm looking forward to seeing them play as they also have a player selected for the Scotland A programme. We will also welcome newcomers Kinloss Eagles into the Northern League who are made up of no doubt hardend soldiers from 39 Engineer Regt who are based up there.
