Callum was a solid performer last season, an aggressive central midfielder who chipped in with quite a few goals. He’s a threat in the air at set plays. He made his debut for the Buffs reserves last season at left back and coped very well.His older brother signed for Irvine Meadow XI this year so we may see them lock horns on the pitch in the near future.”
