At 32 years old, St Mirren’s Ryan Flynn is one of the more experienced players in the middle of the park at the club. However, he feels that some of his younger midfield counterparts  – Cammy MacPherson and Ethan Erhahon – play with maturity that belies their age.

MacPherson is 22-years-old and Erhahon is 19-years-old. Flynn believes that the duo haven’t been overawed by playing regular first-team football.

“Don’t think they play as young players”

“I think what I’d say about them is I don’t think they play as young players” he said.

Flynn has disclosed that he has been impressed with Erhahon since he joined St Mirren. Indeed, he felt the player was ‘outstanding’ in training.

“The way they read the game, the way they get on the ball and things like that, I think they are really good players I’ve always been impressed with Ethan since I came here.

“I’m not surprised”

“I was surprised at his age when I first joined the club. He was only 16, and he was training with us, and he was outstanding. So, I’m not surprised that these guys are going on and showing everyone what they can do.”

“They are really thriving on getting the minutes. Cammy’s goal (against Livingston at the weekend) was excellent. We always get on at him, cos he’s got such good technique, we always say he should do it more. I’m sure they’ll show their talents as the years go on” Flynn said.

St Mirren are in action tomorrow night against Motherwell. A win would put the Saints four points clear of Dundee United in the battle for a top six place.
