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.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
