Scottish Youth Cup draw and first Spartans Youth Player to sign for an English Championship team

Posted on Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Our 19s have drawn SFL team Dumbarton at home in the first round of the SFA Youth Cup. The game will be played on September 11th. We have a young team this season, mostly Under 18 players however both Jordan Finnie and Clarke Veitch who featured against Manchester United on Sunday will be in our U19 squad.
One of our ex U19 players Craig Sutherland signed a 2 year contract with Blackpool today. Craig played for us in 2006 and 2007 before going to the US on a soccer scholarship. He developed and was offered terms by both Reading and Blackpool before being persuaded by Ian Holloway to go to Blackpool. In line with FIFA regulations we will receive compensation along with the other teams he played for at Youth level. Hopefully Craig’s success will be an incentive to some other youngsters in our Youth section.
