Who's next on the conveyor belt?  By all accounts the young lads struggled recently against Buckie - that was quite a worrying performance I thought?

In short term henratty has huge potential. I believe Hancock is well thought off too. He's an 18 year old centre half. 

The 2005s have just gone to u18s. They had 5 or 6 in Scotland squad. I think we will see a few from there break through. Emslie is very gifted. Hopefully we will see a couple hit first team over next 2 years. 

2006s have Alfie bavidge, mentioned him before, I think he's actually playing up with 18s now, he's probably best striker at his age group in Scotland.  He scored as u18s beat Middlesbrough 6 0. Ryan Duncan scored a hat trick and he's been on Fringes of first team for a while. 

Unfair to call out anyone younger but the youth teams are at top end in Scotland.

It is a wee bit odd the match is not at Cormack Park.It hosted the Youth Cup tie with Montrose,which possibly turned out a closer and more exciting match than we maybe anticipated.The prestigious occasion of a quarter final sees a return to Balmoral Stadium and Cove Rangers !.....Calvin Ramsey outstanding for U18s and a real prospect.

Often write a lot of drivel,but that last sentence wasnae bad ! Excellent v BK Hacken,superb v Dundee United.Always really encouraging and heartening to see young local players come through and do well.

Kevin Hanratty and Tyler Mykyta have both joined Formattine United on loan and both scored in 4-1 win at Pitmedden against Forres Mechanics The pair will benefit from games in the Highland League.

Alfie Bavidge - son of Martin?  Grandson of Mitch?

Spot on starryfish.The Bavidge football  name continues. Martin Bavidge was still playing often for East End Juniors before the first lockdown.He was  maybe not the most mobile,but his skill and touch still stood out.Like RUL says there are high hopes for young Alfie Bavidge in the Aberdeen youth set-up.

What's the current feeling with Connor Barron?  I see he's off to Kelty on loan.  This time last season a few were saying he wasn't far off the first team... with some predicting he might get a few games.

Thanks for that RUL,always great to hear of victories over Rangers whatever the level.The programme for the Dundee United match had good potted biographies and pictures of the best u16 footballers coming through the Dons Academy.Aberdeen have always produced excellent homegrown players.Stepheb Glass himself a perfect example, and  nice to hear Scott Brown there watching the game The young players will notice and appreciate that.

What criteria do AFC look for when loaning our players out? The loans this season are quite random in league status and location. Highland Lesgue, League 2 etc.

Suffered a bad knee injury and heavily impacted by the covid restrictions also. I'm not sure he will make it now at Aberdeen. Important loan for him at Kelty.

I think he’s going to be ace. Have a look for his first ever goal for Brechin.

Heard on the radio Elgin 2-0 away to Hibs B (albeit with the euro game later this week Hibs B will be their very true reserves)

Charlie Adams and Chris Burke didn’t seem in the slightest interested.  Distracted even.

Finished 1-0. 

Well done the young team. 

Aye, a good win against Celtic and now a win against a decent Highland side with 10 men. It's clear that the winning mentality is seeping through to the young uns as well. I've faith in Robson as a good coach and mentor... he's maybe seen as a bit of a head case by some but his interview pre-season impressed. Hopefully he's the man who supplies us with more McKenzie's and Ramsay's.

Did Brora not put 6 past us last season?

A decent result when so many young players involved.

They did and going by Robson's pre-match interview it sounded like he was half expecting more of the same. Tremendous result.

Just goes to show you the levels in professional football. A u18 side beating a good side in Brora and half the 18s side will never make it at professional level.

It wasn't our u18s to be fair. It was our development squad. Different squad. Mostly older players on loan at moment. 

Thought we deserved the win last night, great grit when down to 10.

Big test v Arbroath.
