SAMMY STANTON admits he is enjoying his football at present after sitting on the bench during yesterday's Edinburgh Derby and now being selected to represent Scotland under-19s against Germany at Falkirk tomorrow (kick off 2pm, kids go free).
The 18-year-old midfielder impressed at first team level during pre-season, including scoring against Zeeland Select, and was an unused substitute in Sunday's exciting draw against Hearts.
Now Stanton, who was capped twice at under-18 level, is aiming to make his mark in the blue shirt of Scotland against one of the best football nations in the world, Germany.
Stanton said: "It's been great - to be involved in my first derby game was a very special experience and now I've got the opportunity to play for my country against Germany.
"I'm enjoying my football right now and taking it one step at a time with my feet firmly on the ground. Hopefully I'll get the chance to play against Germany and I will try to make the most of the opportunity."
GARY DEEGAN says Hibernian's spirited comeback against Hearts is just a starting point and that everyone shouldn't get too carried away with the result.
New boy Deegan made his debut in the Edinburgh Derby - eight days after completing his mopve north from Coventry City.
The robust Dubliner, 24, deservedly won the Sponsors Man of the Match award but stresses that Hibernian needs to use the result as a building block.
Deegan said: "We can't get too carried away with what happened - we only drew.
"But there were a lot of positives that came from the game. The development of the team is still a work in progress and we've still got a long way to go on the journey to where we need to be as a team.
"I loved playing in front of the Easter Road crowd and the supporters gave me a really warm welcome. Hopefully I went some way to repaying them with my performance in the midfield."
PAUL HANLON will win his 21st Scotland under-21 cap if he is selected to start against Belgium at East End Park tomorrow night (kick off 7.30pm).
David Wotherspoon, who laid on Leigh Griffiths' equaliser, has also joined up with the squad and is line to win his 15th cap at that level.
Everybody connected with Hibernian would like to wish all our international players all the best for this week's fixtures.
