Former 1st team players for Gordonians play for Scotland in the Home Internationals

Midfielders Paddy Conlon & Calum Wood, defender Brett Simpson, and goalkeeper Craig Farquharson (Farky) ensured that Gordonians were very well represented in the Scotland Over 40s.

All four played in every match starting with a 4-2 win over Ireland and a 4-1 win over Wales.
Their final match with England was closely contested at 1-2 to England until the last 20 minutes however late goals by England gave them a 1-5 win to be crowned Home International champions at Over 40 level.

Midfielder and current club member Ian Robertson (Robbo) played for Scotland Over 50s whose Home Internationals were staged at the same venue Southgate Hockey Club, North London. The Over 50s drew with Wales and Ireland but lost to England.
