 Old Firm Colts

Celtic B lost to Bonnyrigg Rose 2-1
The Rangers B won 2-0 v Boness
I wonder what the youngsters playing today learnt , and how is this going to produce more young talent for the national team ?

Bonnyrigg are a good side so I am sure they will have learned a lot playing against experienced players, will definitely have learned more in that match than beating another colt team 5 nil. Bo’ness are also a progressive side in the lowland league.

There is a huge gap between colts and teams like Bonnyrigg not in terms of ability but physical presence and nous ... I remember that as a Laddie playing under 21 then playing against our local junior team ... Wow ... a lesson never to forget ..

Interesting BPP. How was it that players like Kenny Dalglish were `farmed out` to junior clubs to `toughen them up.` How the hell did they manage to produce anything productive in an environment of win at all costs? Were they just too technically good to be hammered? Or did they learn how to take the edge of physical opponents? It`s clearly an important part of how a young, aspiring professional develops but how does it happen?

The fact the we are talking about someone who played in the 70s suggests colt teams or not Scotland does not produce technically gifted footballers.

I'm shocked that football was invented when Buspass was a lad😉

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

BPP I remember heading the ball that you mentioned, especially when it was wet and you headed the laces. I can fully understand why many of the older pros have suffered. As I went to Alloa Academy and football in my early years was a no no. It was only when I was in S2 that we started to play soccer, football meant rugby. We played soccer with Mouldmasters they were bad enough.

Sawdust for lines? Better than creosote. Seem to remember putting dubbin on the football as well as the boots. Also the joy of playing at Pitreavie, nets! Warm up was standing close to the goal and scoring in a netted goal. Never had nets at Bull`s Park!

Know a couple of managers down south have spoken about preferring to send guys to National league etc and would rather do that than play an extended version of kids football in the U23/Development league. Will learn much more against men than playing against other academy teams etc. One of the main losses of a "competitive" Reserve league where young guys could learn from senior pros coming back from injury etc.
