There’s another young Scotsman to keep an eye on in the Premier League after Harrison Ashby made his West Ham debut.

The right-back is a highly-thought of prospect at the Hammers, making appearances in the EFL Trophy this season. Most of his football has come for the U18s but recently has stepped up to U23s.

Now he’s got a senior West Ham appearance under his belt. David Moyes handed him a big chance in the Carabao Cup against Charlton, coming on as a substitute as the Hammers coasted to a 3-0 win.

Sebastien Haller got two whilst Felipe Anderson netted with 10 minutes to go. Ashby got some minutes, a promising sign that his development is going well at West Ham.

He’s another Scotsman with senior minutes at a Premier League club, Billy Gilmour the standout prospect for Scotland down south along with seasoned internationals like Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney and John McGinn.

Could Ashby become another name to add to that list in the coming years? So far, he has made four Scotland U19s appearances.
