Wolecki Black: We’ll keep bringing deserving Academy players up

Eddie Wolecki Black praised his motivated Celtic side for sealing a fourth consecutive win, but also made it clear the door is open for Academy players to prove themselves to him going forward.

Celtic beat Spartans 2-0 with first half goals from Chloe Craig and Sarah Ewen, but it was the introduction of the Academy’s Emma Craig that showed Wolecki Black’s intentions for the future.

The 18-year-old scored a hat-trick in the SWFL1 Cup Final and has impressed the Hoops boss in recent weeks, further impressing him in her cameo last night as he stressed retention of players is paramount.

“We have to reward our youth players that are playing particularly well, because we want them to stay at this club and be a part of our future,” he began.

“In the past, we’ve been guilty of losing our best young players, so I think we need to make sure that doesn’t happen anymore.

“It’s difficult for a young kid to come into this level, but I thought she got to the intensity of the game quite quickly, made a couple of good surging runs and I thought she did well. We want the strongest players possible here. I see this team being built on youth, therefore Emma Craig might be the first to come up this season but she certainly won’t be the last.”

Celtic returned to action following a free weekend and maintained their momentum running out comprehensive winners in East Kilbride, despite not recording the same 5-1 score line from Edinburgh earlier in the season. But the manager was still pleased with the result and dedicated it to two Celtic legends.

“They were motivated but so were we. On the day it is, with two of our club’s legends’ anniversary, Bobby Murdoch and Tommy Burns, it is pleasing that we put in a performance and the two goals are dedicated to those two,” he said.

The manager also hailed current top scorer Sarah Ewens’ form, as she netted her fifth in four games last night just before the interval with a fine finish.

“I’m very pleased with Sarah - she’s been a threat for most of the season.

“She started very well here at the start of the season against Forfar. She’s having peaks and troughs right now, but when she’s hot, she’s hot so I’m delighted with her performances,” he told.

Celtic play Motherwell in the SWPL1 on Sunday, May 19 at Ravenscraig. Kick-off 2:30pm.
