Connor Barron achieves latest goal with Victory Shield Call-Up

ABERDEEN youngster Connor Barron was recently announced as TEXO drone Talent of the Month for August by the club.

The teen was rewarded for his performances in the Scotland under-16’s outfit as well as his stand-out appearances for the Dons under-17’s squad where he has so far been a stalwart.

And the 15-year-old playmaker admits he has already achieved plenty of his ambitions already, telling the club website: “I wanted to train with the U20s before the summer time which I managed to do. I won the talent of the month award which was a goal and I was selected at international level. My next aim is to be selected for the Victory Shield squad, which gets picked in October.

“I just take what is in front of me and get on with it. I am a central midfielder but occasionally I will get pushed out to the wing. I scored my goal for Scotland playing as a winger. I’m happy to adapt.”

Earlier this afternoon, Connor achieved his latest goal as he was included in the Scotland U16’s squad for the 2017 Victory Shield in Belfast.

Congratulations to Connor and fellow #360Youth clients Cole Starrs and Connor Smith on their international recognition!
