Warriors sign 2 Hibees on loan
Stenhousemuir FC is delighted to announce the signing of Callum Yeats and Jayden Fairley on loan from Premiership side Hibernian.
19 year old Yeats is a left sided defender who joined Hibs Academy at the age of 9 and signed his first professional contract at 16 years old in 2018.
17 year old Fairley is a creative midfielder who started with the Edinburgh side at 11 years old and graduated from the Academy in October 2019. He also won the Hibs Academy POTY award and represented Scotland at U17s.
Both players have been in training at Ochilview since the start of September and have featured in all 5 of the Warriors friendlies. It will be the players second loan spell after both were out at Civil Service Strollers F.C in the Lowland League until the pandemic curtailed last season. Yeats featured regularly for CSS throughout the year and Fairley joined his teammate in Jaunaury for what turned out to be a short loan experience.
Manager Davie Irons commented on his 2 latest additions
“We are really happy to have brough both players to Stenhousemuir FC and we wish to thank Hibs for working with us to get the deals done. By allowing both the lads into training for the last month it has given us a really good opportunity to get to work with them and identify their strengths and areas to improve. By working closely with the 2 players we have also been able to develop a good relationship with them and give them an insight into what we are aiming to achieve at the club. What is really pleasing is both lads have fitted into the squad really well and our senior players have been terrific with them.
Callum has played every game at left back and has performed well against some strong teams and Championship and League 1 players. He has strong defensive attributes and is very composed on the ball. He competes extremely well for his stature and has a terrific attitude to both training and games’.
Jayden is a couple of years younger and at a slightly different stage in his development. He is technically very good and has a great eye for a pass. He has come off the bench in a few games and started against Berwick. He has not be fazed at all, showing confidence to get on the ball and also doing his job defensively’.
