Hibs named trialist Kosta Sparta in their squad for the Reserve League match with Hamilton on Monday March 18.

The right-midfielder is currently with AFC Wimbledon in League One, and came on as a second-half sub for the Easter Road side’s development team as they ran out 3-1 winners in Lanarkshire thanks to goals from Fraser Murray, Jamie Gullan and Lewis Allan.

Although listed as a first-team player, the 19-year-old is yet to make a senior appearance for the Wombles.

Australian-national Sparta was attached to Reading’s academy before making the move to Kingsmeadow in May 2018. He featured in 13 games for the Royals’ Under-18 side.

Following Sparta’s signing, AFC Wimbledon Development Squad and Academy boss Alan Reeves told the club’s website: “Kosta is technically a very good player.

“He does not give the ball away much and he showed a good attitude in training. He did not look out of place in first-team training, which is very important. Physically, he has things to work on, but he looks like a talented boy.

“Hopefully, Kosta will have that bit of hunger to do well after being allowed to leave Reading and he will hit the ground running when pre-season training starts.”
