    He actually played at Wembley in a youth FA Cup final for Southampton before signing for Hibs.

    If he fails at Hibs he will be released with no money in his pocket.If he fails at Man City he will be released after a great experience at a top top club with the added bonus of having a decent wee wedge in his pocket.Can any 16 year old working class laddie turn that down???

  8. #37
    Would be disapointed to lose him as he seems highly rated but at 16 he years away from any first team action as not many keepers are playing first team football in there teens.


    On a side note, think Man City been scouting the Scottish youth teams as they allready taking a few from Celtic and Rangers with Liam Smith, Josh Adams and Adedire Mebude going down there recently.

    Andy McNeil went to Sciennes and Boroughmuir, he was a contemporary of my laddie (also a goalie). Both played at the same age group at Boys club. Felt for the laddie when he was at Hibs, some horrible mistakes, but he is a cup winner so he’s in a pretty elite group of Hibs players

    Has the £100K actually been confirmed?

    I only read '6 figure sum'. Of course that could be £100K but it could also be £999K.

    Signing youth players for a relatively cheap fee and selling on at a profit has been a good earner for Man City. £150m over the past five years from academy sales. The bulk of the guys have never been near the first team.

    They and the likes of Chelsea have
    Thought UEFA were introducing a system, where you could only loan out so many players
    I shudder to think how many good players have gone into their academies, who may have developed elsewhere, if theyíd only played for their local teams

    I think the bulk of the guys they sell do make it at a decent level though. The approach Man City takes also helps with their FFP commitments.

    Potentially makes UK youngsters more valuable.

    From FA
    Under FIFAís rules, the UKís exit from the EU will also mean that clubs will not be able to sign players from overseas until they are 18.

    It does and Scottish clubs, players and agents are well aware of it.

    That was my thought as well.

    Did Jason Gardiner ever play for the first team, there was high hopes for him at one time?

    Don't recall him breaking into the first team. I remember seeing him play in goals when we won the BP youth cup at Easter Road maybe against Dundee Itd?

    Had high hopes for Chris and Jason

    Edit.. Just looked back and looks like it was Ayr Utd that we won against at ER

    We played Dundee United around that time as well.

    I think it was tannadice and I might even have been there. My family knew one of the players so had an interest at the time. Travelling to tannadice tk watch a youth game doesnít sound like something we would have done so every chance Iíve got my memories mixed up.

    Sure we played them around that time though.

    Who was the goalie Ally someone? Sure he got a few games early 00s.

    I remember Utd away.

    Must have been the final away against Utd as I only used to go to the home games as a Club 86 member.

    Alot of players in that team that I thought could have made it, Gardiner in goals, Graham Love at LB. Colin Mcdonald. Tweed did come through.

    Huge leap to our first team though

    No it was a media assumption to spice the story up that was based on him having a contract at Hibs.
    The kid hadn't even had his trial at Man City and will be one of over a hundred talented youngsters who go there for trials each and every month.
    Any young player that shows real promise at a club like Hibs which separates them from the crowd will find themselves contacted by lots of big teams and asked to go for a trial. Our kid should enjoy it for what it is but not be too disappointed if they don't want to sign him up. As I said there will likely be another trial with another big club round the corner. It's a brutal business and the odds are, that in the end, the kid won't even earn his living playing football.
    Caveat - I haven't seen the kid play so Billy Whizz will be along in a minute to say the kid is the best young keeper he has ever seen at Hibs and that he will definitely make it .

    Ally Brown.

    Jason Gardiner dropped out the game and years ago I met him and he was a store detective at M&S or BHS in Princes Street if I recall. Good guy

    Did he let you off?
    Was also a joiner and soccer school coach after retiring.
    Jason the randy goalie represented Scotland at every age group up to and including U21 but didn't play a single game for Hibs in his 7 or 8 senior seasons at the club. A season at Stirling Albion and career finished by knee injuries
    A good example of how hellishly difficult it is to have a full time career in the mens game even when everyone thinks you will make it.
