Harry Cochrane continues his journey to the top with competitive debut

360 Sports youngster Harry Cochrane made history on Saturday by becoming the first player born in the 2000’s to start a Scottish Premiership game.

The Grange Academy and Scottish FA JD Performance school graduate started for Hearts away to Dundee at the weekend before being replaced by Manuel Milinkovic on 72 minutes.

16-year-old Harry has been widely tipped to make a big impact in the future and was given the opportunity to show what he can do by new Hearts boss Craig Levein.

Unfortunately for the Jambos they couldn’t hold on to a point as a late winner from Kerr Waddell sealed the three points for the Dee.

However, the highly-rated Cochrane can be delighted with his performance and he even received a standing ovation from the visiting supporters after he was brought off.

The teen tweeted: “Disappointing result, but what a feeling making my full debut for hearts today.”

Well done, Harry!
