The Aberdeen youth system seems to be continuing to pushing out talent with players being selected into the Scotland U18 set up for a 3rd year in a row.

Youth players of Carwyn Walker, Damien Gennochio, Jordan Robertson, Mitchel Scott and Gavin Reed have all been selected into the squad. Gavin and Carwyn are both in their 2nd year with the U18 set up and have proven to be first class players in the Warriors Set up.


Gavin who gained scholarship at Wakefield College is relishing his time playing rugby league down there and feels he is becoming a stronger, fitter more mature player and is looking forward to pulling on the Scotland and Warriors jersey again.


Head Coach and Chairman Craig Parslow states "With the local talent that keeps coming through just amazes me, to help these youngsters progress and we have taken them up into the senior team to help develop their game and bring them on and into a more professional type environment that they will receive playing for their country. This is going to be a very exciting year and I look forward to seeing the players come on and wear both the Warriors and Scotland badge on their chest."


The other players have also just stepped up from last year’s Scotland U16 side where they all seem to be developing into the next generation of rugby players for the northern club. Damien the youngest of the players had this to say "It’s an honour to be selected for the U18 side especially with the class of players that are about at the minute and I look forward to playing in the Scotland Jersey this year, Its also nice to have the belief of the Senior boys behind us and to be asked into the senior squad is awesome and I cant wait to be a part of it."
