Sam Nixon is promising young defender with good pace and excellent use of the ball when stepping out from the back. Can play either right central defence or right back. Sam is 17 years-old and he attended Inverness Royal Academy. 

Calum MacLeod is a technical central midfielder who is comfortable in possession. Good passer with excellent game awareness. Calum is 17 years-old and he also attended Inverness Royal Academy. 

Jack Walker is a powerful central defender who is good in the air. Attacks ball well in both boxes and has good natural aggression to his game. Jack is 17 year-old and he attended Nairn Academy. 

Congratulations to Sam, Jack and Calum!
