Scotland Under-16s travel to St George’s Park for an international friendly double header against England and Turkey at the end of August and manager Billy Stark has named two players in his twenty one man squad who began their careers in the United Community Club set-up, Jay Charleston-King who is now at Hearts and Jayden Fairlie who is now with the Hibs Youth Academy. First up for the Scots are England on Monday 20th August at 3pm followed by the Turks on Wednesday, 22nd August at 1pm. I'm sure everyone will wish Jay and Jayden and the rest of the squad the very best of luck.
