    The Dundee United fans won't be chanting Alex Robertson's name anytime soon - but he certainly deserves unsung hero status.

    He's the talent-spotting scout who focused the club's attention on two North-East lads playing for Brechin Boys Club.

    Ryan Gauld from Laurencekirk and John Souttar, who lived five miles away in Luthermuir, were still at primary school when smart Alex first eyed their football potential and recommended they were signed up.

    Vision has become value to the United supporters who've enjoyed watching two gifted, fresh-faced youngsters battering down the door to the first team.

    Robertson has made his debut for Scotland Under-21s since leaving Queen's Park

    Value as well to the club's bean-counters, who can look forward to the pair of them - hopefully later rather than sooner - giving a big boost to their balance sheet.

    Both Gauld and Souttar played in the United top team at the age of 16 when Peter Houston was manager and both, now 17, have extended their contracts to the summer of 2016 amid growing interest in tempting them away from Tannadice.

    Both were eye-catchers when I watched the 4-0 home win against St Mirren. Tiny Gauld, so comfortable running with the ball and scorer of the stunning third goal of the game.

    Souttar was relaxed and commanding in central defence and wants to play football from the back.

    The two of them have already had lucrative opportunities to leave United, but they'd rather grab the chance of playing first-team football as opposed to being in the reserves elsewhere or sitting on a bench.

    Their decisions, unlike other Scottish youngsters who have jumped at the first chance to go, are based on good family advice and a big belief in the apprenticeship they're serving at United.

    Academy director Brian Grant and under-20 coach Stevie Campbell are due a lot of credit for a youth development system that's clearly firing on all cylinders.

    When Gauld and Souttar signed their new contracts, Scotland Under-19 captain Darren Petrie agreed a longer stay at Tannadice as well.

    Alistair Coote is another United youngster making headlines. He scored twice for the Scotland Under-16 team against Northern Ireland in the Victory Shield.

    And there's another centre back called Souttar in the pipeline. John's younger but taller 15-year-old brother, Harry, is one to look out for.

    What attracts these youngsters to United, apart from the quality of football education they're getting, is the knowledge that age is no barrier to playing for the first team.

    Petrie was one of the Dundee United teenagers to sign new contracts this week

    That's long been a tradition at Tannadice and it's only been enhanced by current manager Jackie McNamara.

    In addition to giving Gauld and Souttar plenty game time, he also signed 19-year-old Andy Robertson from League Two outfit Queen's Park.

    He's now nailed down the left-back position and got himself into the Scotland Under-21 squad.

    There's a clear pathway of progression if a player is good enough.

    I'm not saying that doesn't happen at other clubs. Clearly it does, but United are certainly hard to beat at the moment in giving youth its chance.
