PARS defender Lewis Martin won his first international cap on Tuesday night after he played for Scotland under-19's in a friendly against Belgium.

The 18-year-ld was named in Ricky Sbragia's squad for the challenge match in Tubize just hours before starring in the Petrofac Training Cup win over Raith Rovers, and made his bow as a second half substitute against the Red Devils.

Martin was the only Scottish-based player selected that plays outwith the top two divisions for the game, which Scotland lost 2-0.

Along with team-mate Ryan Williamson, the centre back was in line to play in a friendly with Serbia towards the end of last season but suffered disappointment as the match was postponed. Both players will hope to be involved in the squad for the under-19's next match against the Czech Republic in Greenock next month.

Pars boss Jim Jefferies said, "I'm delighted that he;s got the recognition, though I think Ryan Williamson is a wee bit unlucky not to be involved although he was on standby. But it's great for him to be involved at that level, and Lewis has started the season very well."
