Gemmell puts Gregor in squad

GREGOR YOUNG has been named in Stephen Gemmell’s Scotland squad for the first leg of the 2013/14 HSBC Sevens World Series.

The former Jed-Forest sevens specialist will make his first trip on the circuit, when the squad travel to the Gold Coast next week, following his outing with the team last weekend in the FIRA-AER tournament in Bucharest.

Gemmell said: “Gregor has shown a lot of promise in training and performed well in Bucharest. He has a wealth of sevens knowledge and is a powerful player who brings with him an option to play in the forwards or backs.”
