“I’m delighted to be named in the Australia squad. It’s a proud moment for my family and me,” said the 25-year-old Aberdeen born Hibernian winger on hearing the news.

Having represented Scotland at the U16 level family man Boyle will be packing his bags on Monday and for his first ever Socceroo training camp meet-up in the Middle-East.

How did Martin qualify for the Australian national side?

His father Graeme was born there.

“The national team manager spoke with me about my eligibility, and he was keen to bring me into the squad, and I was keen to be involved,” said Boyle.

“It will be a new experience for me, but with plenty of experienced players in there, I am sure they will help me bed into the new environment, and I can’t wait to pull on the gold jersey for the first time.”

In 2009 Martin began his senior career at Montrose, staying at Links Park for three years. In 2012 Martin ended up at Dundee before finally settling down three years later at Easter Road.

Well over a century of Hibernian appearances later and 24 goals under his belt Martin finds himself progressing up to and including the international footballing ladder.
