Josh McConville and Liam Newton have not only played a key part in the under 20 campaign for the Bayview club, but their talents have been recognised by boss Darren Young who has handed them both places in his first team squad.

Josh attends Harris Academy while Liam is a Kirkcaldy High School pupil.

The Scottish selectors for the Under 18 squad watched numerous Scottish Cup ties, area trials and a final trial on Tuesday before deciding on a squad which also features Fifers Kyle Sneddon from Madras College and Jack Reid from Woodmill High in Dunfermline.
