Year 11 pupil Evan Cunningham has been selected for the U17 Scotland squad, ahead of friendlies against Hungary and Sweden.

Evan, who recently signed a scholarship contract for Blackburn Rovers, has been selected following impressive performances for his new club against Sunderland and Stoke City FC. Evan is the 45th footballer from QEGS to play for a professional club, following a tradition of successful footballing alumni dating back to the 1870’s.

Evan will travel to Spain next week with the U17 squad as they face Hungary (7th February) and Sweden (10th February). We wish him the best of luck!
