Brian Meechan, the Operations Manager for Celtic Academy, reflects on the achievements of 2023 and urges supporters to contribute to the Celtic Pools Lotteries, emphasizing its vital role in providing a conducive environment for the development of young players.

The continued support has enabled the Academy to witness the debut of talents like Mitchel Frame and Daniel Kelly in the first team, both having been with the club since the age of nine.

The recent Scottish Cup tie against Buckie Thistle marked a significant moment for Rocco Vata, an Academy youngster, as he scored his first senior competitive goal in a 5-0 victory.

The ongoing construction at Barrowfield aims to enhance the working environment for players and coaching staff, honoring historical ties as the ground where the Lisbon Lions trained.

Throughout the past year, Academy players have competed in prestigious

European competitions like the UEFA Youth League and Premier League International Cup,

providing valuable experience against renowned clubs.

The Academy’s commitment to holistic development is reflected in its School

Partnership with St Ninian’s High School, Kirkintilloch,

ensuring academic growth alongside football skills.

In 2023, the appointment of Steven Hammell as Head of Academy  Coaching

adds further expertise to the coaching staff.

The focus for the upcoming year is on nurturing well-rounded

players capable of representing Celtic at the highest level.

Meechan acknowledges the crucial roles played by the scouting department,

wellbeing staff, and administration in supporting the Academy’s program.

The message underscores the importance of fan support and participation
