Hibs DV pair join Civil Service Strollers on loan

Last updated : 21 July 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs youngsters Jack Hodge and Callum Yeats have joined Civil Service Strollers on loan.

Midfielder Hodge, who joined the Hibees from St Johnstone this summer, and left sided defender Yeats have signed development loans until the end of the season, which means both players can still play for the Hibs development side while they play for the Strollers.

Hibs have pulled out of the SPFL Reserve league this season, and will instead play a specially designed programme of games against hand picked opposition, like the recent friendly with Newcastle United's U23's as well as last season's games with Huddersfield U19's, Middlesbrough U23's and Stirling Albion's full side.

It will be good experience for both lads in the Lowland League.

Good luck to both players.

Editor's View:

It's good to see our youth players heding out on loan for some much needed first team experience.

It also helps it's on development loans and these kids will get face hand picked quality opposition as well as gaining loan experience.

It will be interesting to see how they get on and wether the Hibees move to pull out of the reserve league is a good move.
