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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
