Former Manchester United fullback Arthur Albiston has quickly been won over by Joe Hugill.
Hugill, 17, is tipped to soon be 'knocking on the door' of Manchester United's first team.
The summer recruit from Sunderland netted twice on his United Under-18s debut in September and quickly shone for the U-23s too.
Former Scotand left-back Albiston, who played more than 500 games for United, told MUTV: “He has got off to a fantastic start in his career, scoring goals right away.
“He played in a couple of Under-18 games and then went into the Under-23s and scored goals there as well.
“Wouldn't surprise me if he keeps doing that, he might be knocking on the door of the first-team squad."
