‘Team Of The Week – SPFL U20s: 6-11th April 2017

Written by 

Kevin O’Hara (Falkirk)

Hat-trick hero for the Bairns in a 3-0 win v Dundee. Nice to see Kevin’s hard work for club and country pay off at this level. A player with a real eye for goal and blistering pace.

Hat-trick Hero... Kevin O'Hara

Oli Shaw (Hibernian)

Keeps his place in TOTW again this week for a superb solo effort in a 2-1 win v Celtic on Tuesday. A win that sees his side leapfrog Hamilton into 2nd, well and truly back in the race for the title with 3 games left.

Calvin Miller (Celtic)
Had to slot Calvin in this week for last Friday’s 3-0 win v Hibs. Big game that one for both sides, Calvin popped up with 2 goals and an assist in a comfortable 3-0 win. Unfortunately the reverse fixture on Tuesday didn’t go his way.

Davie Turnball (Motherwell)
Grabbed two goals from midfield in a 4-0 win over St. Mirren. Both excellent long range strikes, the second is particularly special. Check out that goal here, 5mins 50sec in for what has to also go down as goal of the week…
Davie is on the fringes of the Motherwell first team, I don’t think any first team goalie in Scotland could’ve stopped his second, hats off to you Davie.

Mark Lamont (Partick Thistle) 
Mark’s calming playing style in midfield was central to an impressive 3-1 away win versus a strong looking Inverness side. Grabbed an assist in the process.

Fraser Murray (Hibernian) 
Keeps his spot after playing a key role in his sides 2-1 win in a top of the table clash with Celtic. Made the scoresheet for the second week running.

Alistair McCann (St. Johnstone)
Second goal in as many weeks for Ali. Last week it was against an older and more experienced Dundee United side, this week it was Accies away who were on the receiving end, ended 2-2. 

Michael McMullin (Partick Thistle)
Despite a shakey Partick start and conceding early on, they settled down well and handled the attacking overage Inverness players in style, McMullin was vital. They went onto win 3-1.

Mark Finlayson (Falkirk) 
An attacking full-back who was rewarded with an assist and a clean sheet in a solid Falkirk 3-0 win.

Tony Gallacher (Falkirk)
Yet another attacking Bairns full-back Tony, on the left flank was equally as impressive as team-mate Finlayson. Tony also claimed an assist and the well earned clean sheet.

Ben McKenzie (St. Johnstone)
The young Saints custodian saved a penalty and weathered the Accies onslaught to earn an unlikely point away at in form Hamilton. Also extra credit for facing an overage Hamilton front line.

Next weeks key fixture: Ross County v Hibernian:

Top plays second in what is, undoubtedly, the biggest game of the season so far. With the home side taking a 4-point lead into the game over Hibs, you sense a County win would leave them with one hand firmly on the trophy.
