Arbroath goalkeeper Leonard Wilson insists he is ready and waiting to be called upon as Scotland’s Under-18 schoolboys bid to earn a share of the Centenary Shield.
The 17-year-old has only featured for 45 minutes of Scotland’s unbeaten campaign so far but could yet still play a vital role in deciding their fate with just one match remaining.
A win over the Republic of Ireland in Dublin later this month will see them share the Centenary Shield with England, who they held to a 1-1 draw at Ewood Park last week.
That prevented England from lifting the trophy, while Scotland have also drawn 1-1 with Northern Ireland at East Fife and thrashed Wales 5-1 at Hamilton. Wilson said: “Confidence is really high for us now and we are unbeaten so far in the tournament, which is a huge boost.
“I’ve only managed to get 45 minutes against Wales, but I still feel like I’ve improved dramatically from being here.”
