The Kids Are Alright

Morton youngsters Nathan Shephard and Ryan Kane have extended loan deals with junior side Glenafton Athletic.

The teenagers both joined the New Cumnock team on initial one-month loans at the beginning of October, but after they impressed in that original spell, Glenafton manager Greig Denham, who is a friend of Allan Moore's, moved to extend their deals until December 31.

According to a Glenafton official I have spoken to, the pair have been very impressive and both netted a brace a piece in a recent 6-3 win over Vale of Clyde.

Although their deals are set to run until the end of December, the fact the loan deals are between senior and junior clubs means that they are free to play for Morton at any time during the loan. This was demonstrated when Kane (pictured, in action against Bellshill) was recalled to play in the 2-0 win over Queen of the South.

Their loan records so far are:

Shephard: 4 Starts, 0 Sub App, 2 Goals
Kane: 3 Starts, 1 Sub App, 2 Goals
