Over 60 Internationals 2020
Availability for Selection
To assist the coach/captain in their selection process we require to know if you are available on the following dates:
1. Four Nations in Southgate 22-24 May
2. Celtic Cup Glasgow 14-16 Aug (Thistles are playing a week earlier)
3. Japan 1-16 Nov
PLEASE NOTE - if you are not going to Japan you MUST reply NO to item 3 and you will not get any further emails about it. Further emails will then only be sent about the World Cup if you say that you are "available".
It also follows that if you do not wish to play for the International Squad you must reply NO to all three !
I will repeat what has been said many times before by the selectors. Just because you are unavailable for one or more tournaments does not preclude you from selection for the other(s). Each competition will be selected on merit from all those who state they are available to play.
Finally ALL players should attend Jan and Feb training. The selectors will then decide whether further training sessions are only for those selected or not, as it depends on a number of factors.
To assist your 2020 planning, the following training dates have been proposed:
26 Jan Peffermill 10:30
(poll already out) - ALL

23 Feb - Peffermill Edin Uni - ALL
