Broomhill aiming for home-grown player increase

Written by 

Broomhill SC are providing opportunities for players to move into Senior football with their Lowland League team looking to increase the amount of homegrown talent within their ranks.

Club stalwart Steve Prince is one of the men behind the club's success and Youth Football Scotland caught up with him.

"We want to develop home grown talent. If good players come to BSC they will either play in our first team or they will be picked up by bigger clubs than ourselves," Prince said.

"I want to see passion and commitment, ability is a bonus but all the rest can follow if kids care about it," former Albion Rovers player and current under-19 coach Vic Kasule said.

Prince added: "The under-20s squad sees five home-grown players featuring already, and there are a couple in Vic’s under-19s that he feels can make the leap already this year."

"We intend to start a quota for the first team and the under 20s from next season, that will eventually see a minimum of 50% of the first team coming from the youth system, and 80% of our under 20s will be home-grown too."

The future looks bright for Prince, Kasule and Broomhill SC.
