Sunday, 9th Jun 2013

Scott Sutherland will have a week experiencing life at the Blackburn Rovers Youth Academy.


More good news for one of Dunfermline Athletic's young players, this time it is Scott Sutherland who has been attracting the attention from Blackburn Rovers due to his excellent performances with the U14's squad this season.

Scott, who is signed up with the Pars again for next season at U15's will be travelling with the young Dunfermline Athletic teams at U12's, U13's and U14' squads to the annual football festival at Repton this coming August. He will follow this up with a week long trip to the 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 within 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 with and against top English opposition, an experience he will surely enjoy".


Scott, a striker, was one of five of the U14 Dunfermline Athletic squad who got through the first round of trials and were then invited to the National trials at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium for the selection process towards next season's Victory Shield. They will wait to see who gets picked, however it is good for the Club and the youth system..
