4 promising Celtic talents win Scottish youth appeal; free games for fans

4 Celtic Academy talents, and 2 you may have seen recently, have been called up to represent the Scotland Under-17 side.

The upcoming international break includes severe testing for Brian McLaughlin’s side. Czech Republic, Germany and Georgia will face Scotland from March 23-29 [SFA].

Ben Doak, Josh Dede, Magnus Mackenzie and Rory Mahady were all selected by McLaughlin, all but one player coming from a Scottish youth roster. Doak, of course, made his Celtic debut and even made an appearance against Rangers in a 3-0 win.

Josh Dede, a Celtic B team regular of late, has been excellent for Tommy McIntyre. A right-back who isn’t afraid to take players on and push forward, he gave the right flank real verve in the Lowland League. He also featured in Celtic B’s victory over Partick Thistle in the City of Glasgow Cup today.

The best part? Each of the games is free. Falkirk Stadium will host all three matches, and fans can enter for absolutely nothing.

McLaughlin’s side are in the final stages of qualifying for the UEFA Under-17 Championship in Israel. This tournament begins in mid-May.

Meanwhile at the U21s, only one Celtic talent made the selection. Stephen Welsh has been chosen by Scot Gemmill to face Turkey and Kazakhstan, with the first of those games being played at Tynecastle.

Celtic B team and Academy players get Scottish nods, it’s always a good thing

What a season it’s been for Ben Doak.

It was with the Scottish U17s that the winger really became known to Celtic supporters. Fans loved his performance against Wales in September. His consistent running and ability to finish has Scottish fans searching for more information.

Luckily for us, it quickly became apparent to those unaware that Doak was, indeed, a Celtic Academy talent. He has since broken into the first team, and it seems likely that big clubs outside of Scotland are keeping tabs on the winger.

Dede (photo), too, showed his class. There is much to be excited about the talent coming through Celtic Academy, especially for future Scottish hopefuls.

There is now an appropriate structure in place to provide a bridge between the youth teams and the first team. Not only that, Team B plays with the kind of offensive swagger that shows the fruit of sharing resources and knowledge. It beats hoping for outliers.

Hopefully, just as Doak made an impact on Scotland’s Under-17s, we’ll find out more about Mackenzie and Mahaday by the end of March.
