  1. My report on today's game https://rfcyouths.wordpress.com/2021/10/23/another-win-for-colts/
  2. This is only my opinion of course. I like Kyle but its difficult to measure where he is at the moment. Having played for League One Falkirk last season including at Parkhead in a cup tie, I don't think he is being challenged enough in the Lowland League and these games are of little benefit to him. Another loan move would have been better for his development and give a better indication of his current level. He is not the physical size and power of our regular centre backs at the moment. In saying that in my opinion he is a better option than Calvin Bassey at centre back.

  4. Ure has played and scored a few for the Colts, Semple hasn't been close to the Colts team.

  8. 32 teams that mirror the Champions League Groups 32 teams in the Domestic Champions Path, this is what Rangers are in. Domestic Champions Path play two knockout rounds, which will leave 8 clubs. These 8 clubs will play a second place team in the Champions Youth League Groups. Juan Alegria has been injured, but he is ineligible to play in this tournament. Some U20's are allowed but they have to have been at the club for two years. For the same reason Charlie McCann, Arron Cervantes and Kane Ritchie-Hosler are not available.
  9. He is one of many good prospects in this group, Alex is a bit different and can make passes and take players on, has been around the first team, may have made his debut but a couple of injuries has probably came at the wrong time. First team is a world away from Youth and Lowland League football but Alex is progressing well.

  12. In my opinion there are a couple of reasons, Lowland League has impacted Rangers and Celtic Under 18's to some extent. Probably Celtic more so as they have fielded a lot of U18's in the Lowland League, Rangers have played a few. Last season's U16's group moving into this season's 18's group as U17's were culled with only four getting pro contracts. Two U17's were recruited externally, so only six full-time U17's. There are a further four from last season's 16's on amateur contracts, none of those four have started any 18's game. So the squad is quite thin on numbers. By contrast Celtic gave most, if not all of their 16's from last season pro contracts. The three defeats have been close games. Both Celtic and Hibs probably deserved to edge wins. Dundee United was a strange one, Rangers had the bulk of possession but the two u17 centre backs struggled against a big powerful striker and we lost poor goals to lose 1-3. Early games suggest Dundee United and Hibs are two of the stronger teams in the league, the coming week may tell us more with home games against Aberdeen and Motherwell.
