Youths face Motherwell on Saturday


Celtic’s table-topping under-19 side return to action on Saturday with an away match against Motherwell at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium.

The 11 o’clock kick off will allow anyone going along to the match the chance to watch most of the first team match at Hamilton which kicks-off at 12.30.

Celtic start the second half of the season two points clear of Hamilton and enjoyed a 4-1 win over the Fir Park side earlier in the season.

It’s six weeks since the u-19’s last outing but the break has been put to good use by Stevie Frail and his coaching team.

Frail explained: “Since the snow cleared we’ve been able to have two weeks full training and the boys are looking sharp.

“We’ve managed to get a few players back from injury and we’re looking forward to playing again.

“Ideally you want to have a good balance between training and playing, we’ve spent a lot of time on the training ground and now we’ve got the chance to get back into action.

“We managed to get a couple of games in down south and they went well, now we’re looking to pick up where we left off.”

In the last eight of the SFA Youth Cup Celtic travel to Tannadice to meet Dundee United on February 14 with the kick-off time still to be confirmed.
