Scot Gemmill has announced his squad for the 46th Festival International Espoirs.

Commonly known as the Toulon tournament, he was able to draw on players born from 1997 onwards and named a new-look group.

Sixteen-year-old Billy Gilmour makes the step up to Under-21 level for the first time - fresh from scoring in Chelsea's FA Youth Cup Final win over Arsenal.

The Scottish FA JD Performance School graduate has adapted seamlessly to life at Stamford Bridge and has also impressed as captain of the Scotland Under-17s.

He's joined by Scotland Under-19 skipper Ryan Porteous, who has enjoyed a fine breakthrough season at Hibernian.

Ryan Porteous

In addition to making his mark for Neil Lennon's senior side, the powerful centre-back captained the Hibees' Development team to an SPFL Development League and Scottish FA Youth Cup Double.

Everton striker Fraser Hornby is one of a number of other new call-ups, having caught the eye in cameos this term for The Toffees and our own Scotland Under-19s.
