A talent once described as ‘the best young player our youth academy had produced’ by former Under-17s coach Derek Allan when speaking in March 2016, attacking midfielder Jack Purdue is one to watch here at Cappielow.

Gourock native Jack emerged at Gourock YAC where he caught the eye of chief youth academy scout Mick King and prompted our move to sign him in November 2014.

He made his Under-20s breakthrough in September 2015 and combined his regular was part of Andy Millen’s squad as they went on to win the 2015/16 Development League West title

The teenager’s impressive progress saw him sign a two-year, full-time contract aged just 16 in May 2016 along with a batch including Mitchell Duffy, David Anderson, Darren Hynes, Scott Miller and Ben Eardley.
