Blue Brazil prospect on trial with Brum

PostedNovember 15, 2011

Talented teenage midfielder Liam Callaghan has been invited to train with English Championship side Birmingham City and will spend next week at St. Andrews after impressing the City scout at last week's reserve game.

The 17-year old from Kelty has progressed through the youth ranks at Central Park and is currently a fixture for the under 19s and reserve sides. The youngster - who is the son of former Cowden favourite Willie Callaghan and grandson of former Scotland and Dunfermline star Willie Callaghan Snr - made his debut for the first team during pre-season and is part of the full-time youth set-up under the tutelage of Colin Cameron.

Callaghan is one of a crop of gifted young footballers in the Blue Brazil Youth Academy who will be hoping to be the latest in the line of quality street kids to graduate to the first team squad. Jon Robertson (22), Scott Linton (22), Thomas O'Brien (20) Danny Mackay (20), John Ferguson (20), Kyle Miller (19), Dean Brett (18) and Lewis Milne (17) are amongst the top young players in the SFL with the nonet already chalking up over 300 first team appearances between them.

The production line of technically-gifted youngsters is a credit to Bob Paterson, Director of Youth Development, and his coaching staff. The growing reputation for quality of coaching and opportunities to play first team football makes Central Park the place of choice for any aspiring young footballer and the location of choice for scouts across the country!
