“I believe in these boys and so do the rest of the first team. They train with the first team every day, so it’s not as though they have been parachuted in from nowhere.
“The boys have been training with us from last summer, and the senior players know and trust them.
“They have surprised me a bit in the sense that they are playing at this age. I didn’t expect them to befirst-team players. It was a good night for them and the rest of the team.”
Sometimes it can be seen as a huge risk to play such young and inexperienced players in the Premiership, but Levein had no such concerns when asked about the potential risk involved.
When asked if he was taking a risk, he replied, “Not if you watch him in the training every day it wasn’t.
“With Jamie Walker being out we don’t have anyone else like Anthony. He and Harry are stand outs at their age groups.”
It remains to be seen just how far these boys will go in the game, but if early indications are anything to go by, it certainly seems as though there is plenty to be optimistic about at Tynecastle Park.
