If it was a small fair haired lad called Max, it could be the same Ukranian youngster who played as a trialist last season against Bonnyrigg and Stirling Albion.. His first name was Maksym. I think he will be 17 by now.

Fits the description I was told. I remember you mentioning that he looked like a good player when he was on trial with us before. There must be some kind of work permit issue as it seems both parties are interested. I wonder who he plays for.

I seem to remember some of the first photographs of pre season training with an unidentified youngster running with the squad. It could be him.

The photo I remembered was actually as far back as March.  Who was the laddie next to Berra?

Just had it confirmed that this is the boy playing yesterday. He was apparently unbelievably good.

I remember when the picture first did the rounds on here people were saying they thought it was berra’s child or one of the under 14s being allowed to “train” with the first team for doing well or something! He looos extremely young.

I suspect that there could be a problem getting a work permit for him, given his nationality and age.

 

I've also made a couple of enquiries and come up with the name Maksym ********** (sp?), if we are talking about the same lad. I don't know any more than that.

Is it Maybe best to take the name down if the club are being so secretive about it?

I believe that the reserves play a Liverpool XI on Thursday, probably at Riccarton, but I don't have any details about the ko,

 

The reserves also play Tynecastle at Meggetland next Sunday with a 2pm k.o.

 

All subject to change of course.

Problems getting a work Permit???  For a 12 year old??  He's probably on a Child Trafficking  watch-list.;)

Interesting, so Cletus and this player. Though as FF alluded to, wonder how aged 17 we get around FIFA rules (unless his family has moved here or turns 18 in the coming weeks/months.)

 

On an aside, I think work permit rules need reworked, I do think they are over restrictive, favour big clubs in Britain. Also if the argument was to help British based players, then it doesn't really work with freedom of movement brings unrestricted access from EU players (not that I think either is a bad thing. Remember reading Soccernomics which looked at number of players in a league and the success of a national team, they found actually it can be beneficial having more foreign players as it means home grown talent needs to improve to match and learns off better players, thus providing an overall increase.)

A Hearts U18 side is currently playing  side from the Strachan Football Foundation at the Oriam. Hearts are 4-0 up at half time with goals from Schiavone, Ward, and 2 from a striker I don't recognise called Ian ?????. 

 

There are a couple of others in the team that I don't recognise.

Anyone who follows Connor Smith on Insta should check out his goal on his story today. Assume it's from the Brora game although I did watch it while on a bus so wasn't the easiest to assess who was playing!

 

Cracking goal anyway from over 30 yards.

I found out a little more about the Dino Leddie situation in that he won't be joining the Swedish side until November. Apparently there is some issue over the payment of a development contribution if he joins before then.

 

As an aside. There were four new faces in the Hearts U18 squad today. I assume they are all trialists at this stage. Just picking up on the names and descriptions, and checking with an external source, I believe three of them were previously with Celtic and the other is currently with St Pats.

Thanks, that makes more sense. Looking at the club he is moving to, it seems to recruit heavily from the UK. Hopefully he makes the most of his time there.

 

Interesting to see if we sign any. I think its always worth looking at who Celtic cast off as there is normally a few players that can be talented. Interesting that is another player at St Pats, they seem to be a bit of a feeder club for us with Keena and Nwanze come from them

“From the Brora game”. The game this entire thread is about. The closed door game. At Tynecastle. In Ireland apparently.

Jay (Jaden) Nwanze, centre back from St Pats signed in the second half of last season. Either is 17 or 18 (not complete sure.) He picked up an injury towards the end of the season, saw a poster a few weeks back hinting that he has left the club, but saw him on Monday night at the friendly against Inverness.

Now we’ve got two more training sessions here in Scotland and a game against Hearts at their stadium on Thursday which is a really good game for us to look forward to.
