Birmingham after Ayr trio

Teenagers Crawford, 18, and Shankland, 17, and 22-year-old Sinclair will all travel to England on Monday and will stay until Thursday.

Ayr, who are a part-time club, confirmed that the trio would be due back by next Saturday ahead of their game at Brechin City.

Honest Men boss Mark Roberts told the Ayrshire Post: "We've also had clubs such as Bolton, Crystal Palace and Charlton at our games this season and it underlines that the Academy is doing a great job.

"Crawford and Sinclair are there on merit while Shankland is going due to his reputation since a boy.

"It's a great chance to train and learn. They are all aged under 23 so if anything comes from it, there could be good money for Ayr."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
