Celtic Cup Squad Announced

I am delighted to announce that the following individuals have been selected to represent Scotland in this year’s Celtic Cup which will be hosted by the SFCA on the International Rowing Course at Strathclyde Park from 10th to 13th October.  And I am even more delighted that we will have the opportunity to field our first ever Ladies’ Team in the event.  In Alphabetical order:


Men’s Squad:

Peter Dick

Scott Laird

Mark Lyons

Scott McGhee

Ewan Weed

Barry Young



Roz Cassidy

Heather Lauriston

Emily Mather

Molly Quinn


They will be joined by members of the Senior International squad:

David Corcoran

James Dornom

Colin Hart

David McAuley

Josh Trueman

James Woodrow


These senior Internationalists will assist me in coaching and mentoring the teams through the practice days, and then assist me with the running of the event. Two of them will also be selected to Captain the two men’s teams of 4.

I know you will join me in congratulating them all on their selection, and in wishing them individually and the teams every success.

At the moment I have only selected two men’s and one ladies’ team for the event.  Depending on how many teams Wales and Ireland are able to field, there may be the opportunity for us to field a third men’s team.  If you have an aspiration to fish for Scotland and would like to be considered for this additional team of 4, please email me at  If you want to know more about eligibility criteria and what we are looking for in a potential Internationalist, you can find more information on the Squad Nominations page.

Full details of the event can be found at Celtic Cup 2024 – Strathclyde Country Park – 10th to 13th October 2024 – Event Instruction and Invitation

Tight Lines,

Gus Brindle

International Team Manager
