Super congratulations to our u17 squad who, in defeating defending champs Celtic 3-1 at NDP this afternoon, have won the club academy Scotland u17 League.
With first team skipper Dougie Imrie as head coach, assisted by Darian MacKinnon, and overseen by Head of Youth George Cairns, it’s a tremendous achievement for the club – our first national youth success since winning the Scottish u18 cup in 1992 at Hampden against Clyde.
With a back up team of Sunnan Shah, with Katie, Andy, Sean, Olivia and all the physios, and match assessments from Lee McCafferty, and huge encouragement from all at the club, it’s a huge achievement that could now see us enter the UEFA Youth League.
Still unbeaten this season, with one game remaining – at home to Rangers on Wednesday – it was a double from Sean Slaven, one pen, and Niyah Joseph who saw us win 3-1 at a sunny NDP this afternoon.
Squad – keepers Ross Connelly and Adam McLean, and Jamie Smith, with Jamie Harrison, Taylor Wilson, Jamie Hamilton, Daryl Meikle, Charlie Reilly, Liam Scullion, Reegan Mimnaugh, Kyle Munro, Niyah Joseph, Sean Slaven, Marley Redfern, Liam Scott, Jay Blair, Rhys Casci and Andy Winter, plus Ciaran McAndrew and Scott Hamilton,with occasional support from the allowed over agers Leon McCann, Lewis Smith, Jamie Boyd and Adam Douglas.
Well done! #AcciesAcademy
