KILDRUM THISTLE under 13s proved how good they are by lifting the double last season – now they plan to tell the whole world about it.

The Cumbernauld kids have all signed up to Viascout – a new online site that allows them to showcase their skills, goals and matches safe in the knowledge that the footballing world is watching.

Viascout has been created by former Clyde boss Joe Miller and businessman Paul Carr.

Current Broadwood number two Chick Charnley and Cumbernauld and Kilsyth MSP Jamie Hepburn watched Kildrum’s starlets being put through their paces before uploading their profiles onto the unique site last week.

Players were able to upload their attempts at the crossbar challenge, six-ball shoot-out and beat the goalie.

With clubs all over the world poised to join the Viascout network, the Kildrum players might just have given themselves a real shot at glory.

SNP MSP Hepburn said: “It was great to see the kids having so much fun by participating in their challenges.

“The Viascout concept is fantastic and I’m sure other teams will enjoy participating as well.

“The site itself is state of the art and offers a unique approach which will allow young players to showcase their skills while enhancing the scouting methods of professional football clubs.

“I’m sure Joe’s experience, contacts and knowledge will be an asset to everyone who participates on the site.”
