Exciting young striker Rory Wilson scored a second consecutive hat-trick on Sunday as Rangers U18s hammered Partick Thistle 4-1.

There were plenty of changes to the U18 group over the summer, with Cameron Campbell taking sole charge following David McCallum’s promotion to B team head coach, while many players have also made the step up for the Lowland League season.

However, they still started extremely well, recording big wins over St Johnstone and Dundee.

The good form continued on at the weekend, too, with Rory Wilson once again the destroyer in chief.

The teenage striker scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 mauling of Dundee on Wednesday and notched his second treble in five days on Sunday.

His strikes helped to see off Partick Thistle, with Jack Roberts the other goalscorer in a 4-1 victory.

Roberts has also been in good form in front of goal but 15-year-old Wilson is top goalscorer by three, having already made it to seven.

It’s extremely impressive that a player of his age is thriving at U18 level and there’s sure to be a lot of interest from elsewhere when it comes time for him to sign professional forms.

Rangers have managed to hold onto several highly-rated talents like Leon King and Josh McPake amid interest from big clubs in recent seasons, though, and may be confident of being able to keep the young marksman.

Meanwhile, another young talent who previously attracted interest from Premier League clubs is currently shining for the B team.
