Introducing…. John Baird

Assistant Manager Billy Reid introduces John Baird to kick-off a new series on the website that will give you a bit of background on our talented under-19 squad. Several of the boys will be, of course, hoping to follow Mark Gilhaney and Paul Doyle into the first team this season…

Number 1: John Baird

Date of birth: 22/08/85 (Age 18)

Height: 5′ 7″

Nickname: “Ginger”

Position(s): Striker

Previous club(s): Clyde FC Youth

Strengths: A willingness to work and learn, strong on the ball.

Areas of game needing work: Concentration in training and matches, and also learning when to release the ball quicker.

First team player most similar to: Ian Harty

How long before we’ll see him in the first team? One to watch!

Billy Reid says… “John has improved very much in his 1st year of full-time training. He needs to keep switched on at all times, and could break through into the first team if he takes this on board.”
