Fourteen for '14: Alistair Coote, Dundee United's dynamic forward
The exciting forward starred for Scotland schoolboys as they won the Victory Shield.
With the Dundee United academy starting to produce some fine young players, Ali Coote is being looked upon as the next big thing to break through at Tannadice.
Coote starred in Scotland's Victory Shield triumph and is already being tipped for as the next star to rise with the Tangerines - despite still studying towards his Standard Grade exams.
His international appearances saw him impress on left wing but the adaptable kid is comfortable across the deep forward line, presenting a viable goal threat from the channels and centrally.
With Ryan Gauld, Stuart Armstrong and John Souttar already lighting up the Scottish Premiership, it would not be stretch to believe that Coote is destined to follow them into Jackie McNamara's dynamic youth team.
