Montrose star Cammy Ballantyne who has been called up to the Scotland U21 squad for their game on Tuesday night against Estonia.

The 19-year-old defender has played 25 games for the Gable Endies this season and has flourished since the arrival of manager Stewart Petrie back in December.

Cammy said: “When I got the phone call on Friday night I couldn’t believe it, I was absolutely buzzing.”

The Dundee United loanee has already represented his country at U17 level, but this is his first involvement with the U21s.

Petrie said: “This is great news for the lad and everyone at the Club is delighted for him and we wish him all the best.

“He has done brilliantly since I came, is improving with every game and thoroughly deserves this chance.”

Ballantyne left Gayfield on Saturday to head straight to Edinburgh to meet up with the rest of the Scotland squad.
