First pull ever, not sure how good he is but much better quality than the average Joes making up the rest of my youth squad.

I was a battrick/hattrick player way back when, seeing if this game takes my fancy. Aussie but thought I'd show some pride in my family heritage and join the Scottish leagues.

Hey wsx890410,

As the current Scotland Under 20 manager I’d suggest turning him into a bowler. Having a wrist spinner that is also a gifted bowler is a great combination and the safe hands will still be useful when he’s in the field. Personally I’d start training him in fielding to get that up a bit and it will help with his technique and endurance too then later on you could change him to bowling or even alternate every week or two between bowling and all rounder as his batting looks like it could be quite handy and he could end up a useful all rounder. Good luck with the lad, looking forward to seeing how he develops.

This twirler came through a few weeks ago.

Keeping poor Power average

I don't think he's strong enough for an A/R so probably going for straight bowler. What level would he need to be to get into the U20 team, given he's a finger spinner?

Hi Casperj,

Your player Fingal Brownlie does indeed look to be a player with the potential to represent Scotland, his rating is already massive and I’m glad to hear you are willing to make the most of his skilled bowler talent by working on making him a bowler. As a general guide I would recommend that the key skills he would need to make the squad in this role would be bowling, bowling technique and fielding so to have 2 of those 3 skills already at reasonable as a 16 year old is a fantastic starting point. If those 3 skills could advance from reasonable at 16 to capable at 17, reliable at 18, accomplished at 19 then on to expert by 20 he would be a great chance to make the squad. Don’t be afraid to alternate his training between bowling and all rounder now and again either as a strong tail always comes in handy at international level and good tail end batsmen have got us across the line many times in vital games. If you could get his experience to reasonable by the age of 19 that would be great too but that would mean finding a spot for him in both youth games each week and occasionally trying to carry him in your senior team now and then if you think you have the ability to win games with him in the ones.

Good luck with the lad, I’ll be interested in seeing how he develops.

I had this guy come through a while ago, he's looking fairly useful. I wouldn't normally train power this early, but if you think he'd be useful for the u20s then I'd consider training him a few levels.

Edit: might just be better training him properly and getting him ready for the seniors instead, think he's should be pretty darn good by the time he's 26 or so. ;)

Both of those last two boys look pretty good to me, what’s your plan for Hamish Balfour MOD-wmchamps ... Left handed batting prodigy with a skilled technique? Already got nice levels of batting, endurance and power for a freshling.

Cathal Dalgleish also looks like a decent young player in the making too ddraig, a fast medium all rounder that is a skilled bowler is always handy and his batting, bowling, fielding and technique are already on par with the levels I’d like him to be at for his age, good to see he’s had a few senior games under his belt already too.

Nice work lads.

I am thinking all-rounder for Hamish Balfour as I feel that he can turn out to be a very good one in my deluxe YA.

It’s a shame his technique is starting from such a low level but he does have the bonus of the skilled technique talent which will make up for it when it does improve to the required level and he does have plenty of time on his side, best of luck with the boy, I’ll be interested in seeing how he develops.

I thought about batter but yes the technique gap was too much and I felt that he could become a good allrounder instead.

The way I see it is that he will become a handy youth AR but I reakon he would become a beast of a batsmen with prodigy.
His tech will quickly catch up and without doing the number could be outstanding/out with good fielding at 20

Sounds good, I have him on fielding for now so I can go the batsman route if that will be more beneficial for the U20s.
