ANDY Dorman is hoping that a “good day at the office” against Falkirk on Saturday has moved him a step closer to an international call-up by Wales.
The 27-year-old midfield ace, above, was in fine form against the Bairns as he was involved in all three St Mirren goals during the Paisley side’s 3-1 away-day win.
Now Dorman must wait to find out if he is called up to John Toshack’s Wales squad for next month’s friendly against Scotland in Cardiff.
Under new rules agreed by the Home Nations, Dorman now qualifies for Wales after having spent more than five years at school there.
However, the midfield playmaker insists his top priority will continue to be playing well for Gus MacPherson’s side.
Dorman said: “The Welsh FA have been in touch to check my eligibility but I’ve not really thought about it too much.
“Their next game is against Scotland and I don’t know if I’ll be involved. I just need to carry on playing well for St Mirren.
“It was a good day at the office for me against Falkirk as I played a part in all three of our goals”
MacPherson has confirmed that St Mirren have been contacted by the Football Association of Wales concerning Dorman’s eligibility.
He said: “There has been contact but only from the administration department asking if he meets the criteria.
“Andy was in Wales for 17 years, so he meets the new criteria, and now the next thing is for somebody to come up and watch him and see how he does.
“Then it’s down to the football department. Andy will be desperate to show what he can do.”
