THE NEXT JIM BAXTER?

Good news from Dunfermline Athletic.

Scott Sutherland has been attracting the attention from Blackburn Rovers due to his excellent performances with the U14’s squad this season.

Scott, who signed up with the Pars again for next season at U15’s will be travelling with the young Dunfermline Athletic teams to the annual football festival at Repton this coming August.

He will follow this up with a week long trip to Blackburn Rovers Academy before restarting the season again with the Pars in late August.

Head of Youth at Dunfermline, Stephen Wright said: “Again this is excellent news for one of our young players and everyone involved with the Youth Department. Scott has performed brilliantly this season and has scored a lot of goals along the way. This is a great reward for Scott as he will get the chance to test himself against top English opposition, an experience he will surely enjoy”

At the moment Scott is training with the Scotland U15s at Largs. After successfully getting through two trials, this is his final trial in the process and hopefully will be picked for the squad.
