We’re delighted to announce that Josh Mcconville & Liam Newton have been promoted to the first team squad this season.
17-year-old midfielder Josh joined the Under 20s set-up last summer from Fife Elite FA and made his first team debut in the Challenge Cup against Stirling Albion last August. Josh was selected for the Scottish School’s Boys International Squad for this second time this season & featured in the opening Centenary Shield match this year.
18-year-old midfielder Liam joined up with the Under 20s squad from Kennoway Star Hearts in November. Liam was captain of the Fife Schools Team last season and was called up to the Scottish School’s Boy International Squad this season, making his debut against Northern Ireland in the Centenary Shield in March.
“When we introduced the Under 20s team last season I said that I would be over-the-moon if 1 or 2 players could step up each season and for that to happen in the first year is fantastic and a testament to both the work of the coaching staff and the boys themselves. It demonstrates that the pathway we’ve put in place is working and shows the kids within the Community set-up that there is a progression route right the way through from pre-school to the first team” Jim Stevenson, Chairman
Congratulations to Josh and Liam!
