The pair are both involved with the Scottish FA JD Performance Schools and have turned out for the Easter Road side’s academy teams.

MacIntyre is the younger brother of left-back Oscar MacIntyre – who signed his first professional deal earlier this year and featured in Hibs Colts’ recent 2-1 SPFL Trust Trophy defeat by Elgin City – and has already been involved with the Under-18s despite his tender years.

The Hibs pair started the match at St George’s Park on Wednesday, making their international debuts.
