One to watch: Jamie McCarthy

_42429441_mccarthy_snsb203A host of English and Scottish clubs are currently battling it out to capture 16-year-old Hamilton Academical wonderkid Jamie McCarthy. The midfielder/Neil Lennon Mini-Me scored his first senior goal against Livingston at the weekend.

Liverpool and Reading - where McCarthy is currently training for a couple of days - are leading the chase. Liverpool were quick to make an offer after the youngster impressed during a week-long trial. Hamilton manager Billy Reid said: "Reading is a well-run team, as are Liverpool. But there is so much interest in Jamie just now and we're not in a hurry to sell him." [Rob Parker]
