Rocky mountain high for Gregor

Duns footballer Gregor Watson is set to follow in the footsteps of Steven Gerrard and Andrea Pirlo by moving to the USA.

The former Berwick Rangers Under-20 defender will swap the black and gold for the red white and blue when he begins his new career with top American outfit, Rocky Mountain College.

Watson, who emerged from the Hibernian academy, has been recruited by Rocky Mountain College head coach, Richard Duffy, who was impressed by the youngster’s performances in a number of ‘Talent ID Showcase’ matches during the past year.
