Kilmarnock’s former Liverpool loanee Liam Millar and Ross County midfielder Harry Paton will do battle for the Canadian Youth International Player of the Year.

The Liverpool man enjoyed two loan spells at Kilmarnock and has since made his Reds debut. He has been in fine form for the U23s this term, scoring four goals across the youth league and EFL trophy for Liverpool.

Paton meanwhile has become a key player in Dingwall, becoming central to Stuart Kettlewell’s midfield plan.

Other players nominated include Michael Baldisimo, Tajon Buchanan, Alistair Johnston, Kamal Miller and Dayne St. Clair of the MLS.


The Canadian Youth International Players of the Year Award celebrates Canada’s top two youth footballers. It is comprised of U23s this year due to no national team football at youth level in Canada due to the global pandemic.

It’s a nice boost for Killie’s ex-Liverpool loanee and County’s key engine room player.
