Went along and caught the first half before 7s this evening. It was a tremendous performance. They looked a yard quicker and sharper than Thistle. More physically robust too.

Dom Thomas was outstanding. He took the Thistle left back to bits.

That's good to hear. Hopefully he can bring that on and into the first team as he offers something different.

Mackin looking better too I thought. Dropped some weight since the start of the season and looking sharp.

 

Hopefully he makes me eat my words from earlier this year saying he won't make it.

Mackin looks a lot more mobile IMO and there's a bit of skill there to add to the fact that he seems to be a very decent finisher, his goal the other week was a superb hit. He definitely seems to be becoming a much more rounded striker rather than just a big lump to hit up front. His set up and cross for Blyth's chance early on was a fine bit of football.

30 mins in and Jamie Semple has a double. The second a cracking left foot volley after one touch to kill a cross field ball. Haven't seen him before but read a bit about him and he seems a cracking prospect. Just a shame he's likely to be away down south before he gets near the first team.

 

 

And all the media can focus on is a certain Celtic player got 26 minutes as sub.

The Scotsman today has the following story:

 

 

 

English sides chase Rangers kid

Four of the English Premier League’s biggest clubs are interested in prizing 15-year-old Billy Gilmour away from Rangers.

The prospect is already rated around £3 million and has interested scouts from Arsenal, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs.

 

So Semple must be worth at least that, I'm guessing.

30 times what others are reporting! Seems he can go for as little as £100,000. Rangers are attempting to show his parents a pathway straight to the first team.

I watched 15mins of a u17 game about a month back against Dundee Utd at Dalziel Park.

 

He definitely stood out..... More for his physical size and the pace he had rather than ability.

 

Hopefully progress well under Craggs and Lasley.

Anyone know who the 20s play in the cup in Sunday if local might go and watch it. Can't seem to find a fixture list anywhere

Aye, it's not easy to find. I remembered the tweet from the club but only found the full list via a thread on P&B

Supposition on my part but since the Excelsior pitch is available to anyone to book perhaps we are working around bookings they already had in place before our tie was drawn?

Reckon this is your best bet- possibly other ties in the cup?
