Talking to a bloke last night who's brother is involved with running St Andrews BC in Greenock. He says Morton have approached them with a view to being 'official' feeder club for new Youth Academy from 2010. St Andrews claim to have 9 boys in 2001 and 2002 age groups that are already in youth academys at Rangers, Celtic, Hearts and St Midden. Also one boy at 11 just signed pro youth for Celtic. Don't know what they mean by feeder but St Andrews seem to be one of the most successful and respected Boys Clubs around the area. Shame if their best boysa re already with pro clubs elsewhere at only 8. Anyone heard anything about this?

I'm sure over the coming months there'll be a lot of clubs being approached about getting them involved in the new set-up.

I have been saying for years that the 2 football clubs should try and work togeather.

Ever since i watched my nephew playing for St Andy's at just 8 years old i seen how good the coaches whhere and how good the team was even at that early age !....
My nephews team U11's won the glasgow rangers cup a few weeks ago( it was in the tele) and they even had an invite back up to murray park i think it was to replay the rangers youth again.

I dont know how well the older St Andys teams do ? but from what im seeing in the inder 11's then alot of the youngsters have a future in the game and i would be more than happy if a few of them where to wear the ton strip !

Given that this was to my knowledge being set up by the input of the trust, what have the current management team got to do with the youth setup? I'm not a huge fan of over complicated setups but this is one benefit of a "director of football". Someone taking a long term view on the football side of things across the whole of the club and leaving the management team in charge of 1st team affairs, especially as they never seem to last more than two or three seasons anyway.

They haven't said there will be no youth academy, there are rumours (nothing more) that Malky Thomson won't be heading it despite a press release by the club to the contrary.

Just to add to that U11 and U14 keepers have just signed for St Mirren & Hamilton respectively.

Usually a feeder club would offer their best talent to their parent club ahead of any other club getting a look in.
Would probably work the other way with any boys being released by parent club being offered to the feeder club.

That will be this seasons U12's you are talking about. A very good team who went to Holland last season to compete in a tournament. They entered 2 teams who ended up coming 3rd and 4th out of 20 top teams.

Under 14s goalie was training with Hamilton since May so that was done before the link between Morton and them.

Not sure why folk are getting their knickers twisted on Morton having a feeder club. At the beginning of every season every boy is free to sign for whichever club they choose. Just because they played for a club at an earlier age group does not mean that club has any hold over them unless we are talking about a pro-yputh club.

More concerned if the man identified as HoY does not arrive.
