    Except that the English club who buys him will not want to see him booted up and down the park by the the same type of hammer throwers that tried to finish Duncan Watmore.....
    This type of stuff gets trotted out now and again. The English lower leagues are atleast on a par physically with the Scottish League, infact I'd wager that they are probably worse in a lot of matches.

    Not sure if Ethan is playing or not but Preston Lodge are playing St.Maurice in the final of the Scottish Schools Cup on Tuesday at Airdrie.

    He's in the team photo so I assume he's eligible.
    He's been playing in the games so far.

    Seems quite odd a professional player can play at schools level.

    That's what I thought?
    But if he has been playing then fair enough just seems weird.

    Maybe depend when his birthday is or more likely when Hibs signed him on professional terms. Would be surprised we were comfortable allowing a player to play at school level when he clearly is an asset for us at the moment.

    Spot on. Not like heís going down south to play he wouldnít bet a sniff for probably a couple of years at first team level and that depending how he develops. Itís one thing doing it against kids of around his age. These clubs are buying potential thatís all
    Wayne Rooney debuted for Everton at 16 did he not? As did Gordon Smith and Joe Baker for Hibs if I'm not mistaken. It doesn't happen often but it does happen.

    Yep. He is the youngest player to ever play for England too. James Milner, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Lennon and Jack Rodwell also made their PL debut at 16 among others.

    Iím going to make a guess here that if he had the ability of either of those players he would be in the Hibs first team which tells me he doesnít and itís very much buying the potential

    Its not a rule from the schools but Clubs teams used to demand that their players didn't play in School football. These days they tend to be less strict. Player power etc. Also for a kids that playing pro youth the chance of playing for Cups etc are non existent. If you look at Scottish Schools teams over the last few years there are loads of pro youth players in there.

    https://scottishschoolsfa.co.uk/boys...al-squad-2020/ Most of this years squad are with pro teams, and thats the same if you go through the previous squads. Oh and the girls side beat England recently. Hopefully we do the same on Friday.

    Appreciate that but assuming Ethan is now a signed up Hibs professional rather than part of the pro youth structure. Actually think it is a good thing to be playing with his mates unless of course he gets injured of course that can happen anywhere.

    I know, I know, but sometimes you have to give players opportunities. I feel sometimes we aren't brave enough with our young players who are on the periphery of the squad. Last season would have been the ideal time to give them a few more chances to come on later in games without the pressure of the crowd.

    A lot of the boys are on pro contracts not pro youth. Most of them move to that at 16. I noticed St Ninians won the Seniors Shield. Thats the Celtic Academy School....so it basically the Celtic youth team.

    You cant be giving players a chance on the off chance they might be good enough, they have to be up to the standard they will be playing at.

    The manager obviously thinks he's not there yet, he's a prospect at the moment who hopefully in time will play for us, but we have to trust those at the club who know how good he is now.

    We only had 3 really comfortable league wins all season and in each of those games we brought on 1 or 2 of the younger players (Gullan, Elder and Shanley).

    Is St Ninians a Performance School? (I'm not sure it is). Performance schools are limited to 3 pro youth players plus a goalie I think but non Performance schools can play unlimited pro youth. Academy schools who are non Performance schools obviously take advantage of this.

    It's St Ninian's in Kirkintilloch that's the Celtic youth school. But it was St Ninian's in Giffnock (Andy Robertson's former school) that won the senior shield.

    Ok cheers yes had heard Celtic have a school their promising players go to. Hearts have a set up with Balerno I think. Do we have a similar arrangement?

    I'm not sure we do, I think Broughton is the closest we have to a link up.

    Broughton is the SFA performance school. Nowt to do with Hibs. Hibs talked about having a link up with Porty but nothing happened. It obviously needs staffing investment and that's something we have put on hold for now.

    Yeh St Nins is a Celtic academy not an SFA performance school. As i mentioned earlier the young lad from Lochend gets driven there every day by a Celtic employee!!

    Holyrood is the Glasgow Performance school.
