    Dara Costelloe seems to have responded well to being sent back down from the first team, scoring a hat-trick against Coventry tonight: https://www.burnleyfootballclub.com/...ty-1-3-burnley

    Zack Gilsenan has recovered from his ACL injury and come off the bench for Blackburn's U21 side in their last few games, started today against Chelsea and was substituted at half time

    Ronan scored the last of Wolves' goals in that game: https://www.wolves.co.uk/news/under-...3-0-leicester/

    Elsewhere in this weekend's action:

    Tom Cannon kept his excellent scoring record this season going, grabbing one of Everton's six against Man City: https://www.evertonfc.com/match/7946...ity-u21#report

    ... as did Ollie O'Neill in Fulham's 3-0 win over Blackburn: https://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2022/o...Blackburn-U21/

    Calum Kavanagh's Middlesbrough got clobbered 8-1 by a Southampton team featuring a bunch of first-teamers, but at least he scored 'boro's only goal:https://www.southamptonfc.com/news/2022-10-30/b-team-report-southampton-middlesbrough-30th-october-2022

    That's nine for Cannon and seven for O'Neill and Kavanagh so far this season

    Ola Lawal is a name I haven't come across. Seems like he was in the underage set ups at Shelbourne and Drogheda before moving to the UK and signing for Chippenham Town in the National League South. He played 18 games there last season and moved to Falkirk who are now in League One in Scotland but looks to be doing well there.

    He is Bosun Lawal's older brother.

    Former Dundalk defender Val Adedokun (19) played the full 90 in Brentford B's 2-1 win away to Jong AZ Alkmaar. Adedokun's corner-kick resulted in an AZ own goal.

    He was highly rated before went to Celtic hard to know where he is at now.

    Probably at about the same level as all the other Irish players who were highly rated before they went to Celtic.

    Noticed also from the current and former Scotland u21 sides how few play for Celtic, none were named in the recent squad, this points me to 1 of 2 conclusions

    1. The Scottish underage players are trash and clearly inferior to Irish players in the eyes of Celtic at least

    Or

    2. These Scottish players and their agents have more common sense and knowledge about how dreadful Celtic are at developing players in their academy and have quite smartly stayed away.


    Which of these 2 is more plausible?

    Could be that the players get out of there before they hit U21 level?
    There was four Celtic players in Scotland's last U19 squad - https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/news/bi...ound/?rid=4420 - more than any other (Rangers had three)

    There was three Celtic players in their last U17 squad - https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/news/br...ound/?rid=4425 - no other club had more than two.

    I know from people involved that, down at the younger age groups, it's regularly the case that Celtic are far from the best side and often the likes of Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen stand out at those age groups. A lot of the better young Scottish players do tend to go with other clubs than the big two, for a range of reasons.

    It's widely recognised that Celtic's successful conversion rate from the underage groups to the senior team is particularly poor.

    I wonder why they get out!!!

    Celtic have done a great job of taking in decent Irish prospects and turning them into journeyman in no time at all. Hopefully Kenny and Lawal see sense soon and leave before it’s too late and in future years Vata does likewise.

    But but but they developed Tierney, that means they are amazing at developing youth!
