PARS duo Callum Smith and Stuart Morrison have been included in the Scotland under-19 squad for the start of their European Championship qualifying campaign next month.

Striker Smith, 17, and 18-year-old central defender Morrison have retained their places in Donald Park's pool for the games with Luxembourg, Albania and the Czech Republic.

The talented duo were involved in an international tournament in Serbia in September before being called in for a friendly double header with France earlier this month.

The first of those, at Livingston's Tony Macaroni Arena, saw the young Scots lose 1-0 but both of Athletic's starlets appeared as second half substitutes.

Smith, who last week signed a contract extension tying him to Dunfermline until 2020, posted on Twitter: "Buzzing to be picked for the U19s Euro Qualifiers squad".

The games will take place on November 8, November 11 and November 14, meaning Smith is set to miss Pars' home game with Morton on the middle date.

Morrison, on loan to Edinburgh City, will be unavailable for their League Two clash at Berwick Rangers.

He has made 10 appearances so far for the capital club, for whom his development loan will run until January.
