In our game against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on 3rd February, six Academy graduates were present in the team.
They were, Scott McMann, Darren Lyon, Lewis Ferguson, Ronan Hughes, Ross Cunningham and Shaun Want.
Ryan Tierney was an unused substitute and Ali Crawford was injured.
Six other Premier League Teams now feature players we developed:
Greg Docherty Rangers
Michael Devlin Aberdeen
Eamon Brophy Kilmarnock
Stephen Hendrie Motherwell
Brian Easton St. Johnstone
Zander Clark St. Johnstone
Gary Fraser Partick Thistle
In the Championship, we have been represented this season by:
Grant Gillespie Dundee Utd.
Andy Ryan Dunfermline
Danny Armstrong & David Hopkirk Dunfermline
Steven Boyd Livingston
Jordan Kirkpatrick St Mirren
Jai Quitongo & Lee Kilday Morton
Louis Longridge Falkirk
We believe the sale of Docherty, Devlin and Brophy to three fellow Premiership Clubs in a season is unique. As was the sale of McCarthy, McArthur and Easton to English Premier League Clubs within a year.
We believe this success rate compares favourably with others seeking to produce players for our National Teams.
