Bio Extra

This left-footed, left-sided midfielder impressed in the Thistle youth ranks during 2022-23, so much so that the likes of West Ham, Fulham and Crystal Palace had scouts keeping close tabs on his progress. He earned 4 caps for Scotland U-16s that term, and followed that up with a cap for the U-17s national team in August 2023. He got his first experience of the Partick Thistle first-team at Stuart Bannigan's testimonial, replacing Zander MacKenzie for the final half an hour in front of around 1,300 at Firhill.

Aiden has been a Thistle Weir Academy player throughout his high school years, earning player-of-the-year awards along the way. Like Zak Rudden & Billy Gilmour before him, he enrolled as an SFA performance school student (where football is practiced everyday within an educational environment) to aid his development as a potential footballing professional. The vision of the school is to "produce players with excellent technique who can pass with precision, control with comfort, run with purpose and play with joy."
