Three Hibs youngsters heading to Civil Service Strollers on loan

Last updated : 02 July 2021 By Steve Forbes

According to tonight's Edinburgh Evening News, three Hibs youngsters are heading to Civil Service Strollers on loan.

Yrik Gallantes, Josh Currie and Oscar MacIntyre are expected to complete season long loan moves in the coming days.

All three have actually already appeared in pre-season friendlies against Hearts and Dunfermline for the Lowland League outfit.

Incredibly, all three played AGAINST Civil Service tonight, as a young Hibs DV side, "managed" by new Hibs coach Sir David Gray, ran out 5-3 winners, with Josh O'Connor, son of ex Hibs forward Garry, scoring a hat-trick.

Robbie Hamilton and Murray Aitken scored the other two.

Editor's View:

Good news, getting kids out on loan is brilliant for their development.

Hibs are playing a blinder setting up these club link-ups, it will hopefully help these lads in the long term, and the loan club in the short.

We also, of course, have linked-up with Charleston Battery in the US and Stenhousemuir, as well as Brighton in England.

It will be interesting to see who Hibs send out to Charleston when the covid situation allows it.

Stenhousemuir have already secured a number of loans in the past and of course we could see a few exciting lads head up from England to help the Hibs first team.
