Some of Falkirk Fury’s outstanding young basketball stars

Andrew Melville, Robbie Gilmour, George Henderson and Harvey Berry were in the Scotland U17 squad, while Andrew Henderson, Adama Hainey and Gavin Black played for the Scotland U15s.

Scotland’s Under-17s split their games with Northern Ireland, with all four Fury representatives playing significant minutes in both games.

The Scotland Under-15 side were effectively an U14 side and although they lost their games they provided strong opposition to the older Welsh side.

Fury has seen no less than 25 of his U14 to U18 players represent Scotland in recent weeks.

Sixteen of those players traveled to Barcelona to represent the Scotland men’s and women’s U16 and U18 sides for two weeks, training camps and competitions.

Freya Melrose, Edie McBain, Rose Tyrrell, Jack Shand and Andrew Henderson train daily in the city, with Scottish teams also playing at top clubs in and around Barcelona.

The Spanish city will host 48 Scottish players at U16 level and 48 other Scots at the U18 camp in two weeks, including 11 Fury players.

Freya, Edie and Rose were part of Fury’s young and successful U16 women’s side who finished third in Scottish Division 1 in the 21-22 season. Jack Shand and Andrew Henderson were key players in Fury’s men’s Scottish U16 Division 1 side who reached the Scottish Cup final and finished fourth in the Championship table.

Scottish teams have long trained and played in Barcelona, ​​the mecca of top-flight basketball.

Fury head coach John Bunyan has commented to Heraldsport that 15% of Scotland internationals will be from Fury, a record number of any Scottish club.

He said: “The selection of your national team is always a great achievement and a testament to the work that the players and their coaches have done to make them the best in the country.

“Players follow literally hundreds of other local players who have represented Scotland during Fury’s 30 years in Scottish basketball.”
