Recommended Posts

Hibs youngster Yrick Gallantes - on loan at Gala - made his international debut for the Phillipnes v Guam in WC 2022 qualifying earlier.

Would this be unprecedented at Scottish non-league level?


I'd haziest recollections someone got called-up by an African nation while at Edusport a few years ago. However it was U23s and unsure if he played:

I think he had signed for Forfar before he got his 1st cap 

First full cap almost certainly. The Wiki suggets Odmar got an under 19 cap at Keith.

There was a Maltese international that played for Bo'ness United at one point. Don't remember if he got capped while at Newtown Park.

from what I can find online the player was Simon Vella and he got his last cap while at Airdrie Uniter or Forfar before he joined Bo'ness

Not full international but there was a player at east junior club Tayport last season on loan from Dundee United who played for the Mozambique U23 team whilst at the club (I assume it was an olypmic qualifier). Name of said player escapes me however.

Aye, that's the fella. Definitely didn't get capped during his time at Bo'ness. However I think he made his debut for us within a matter of months after facing up to the likes of Thierry Henry on international duty!

I know it's not quite the same, but,

wikipedia has danish international Per Bartram playing for Bonnyrigg Rose around 1978.

No one I know can shed any light on this.
