Billy Gilmour's younger brother Harvey has taken the next steps in his career after finding a new club.

The 18-year-old left Kilmarnock at the end of last season after his five-year stay in the club's academy ended. 

The midfielder signed professional terms with the Rugby Park outfit in 2022, however, was released a little under a year ago.

He spent time with Kilwinning's Under-20s side, as well as taking the chance to train with Brighton's development squad.

His older brother, Billy, is of course a first-team regular for the Seagulls in the Premier League.

Now, young Harvey's next steps in his football journey have been confirmed, with Glenafton signing the teenager on a short-term deal.

He will look to impress between now and the end of the season as he aims to help Ryan Caddis' team stay in the West of Scotland Premier Division.

The club confirmed the news with a short statement, reading: “We are delighted to announce the signing of 18-year-old midfielder Harvey Gilmour, on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

“Harvey's previous clubs include Kilmarnock FC and Kilwinning Rangers.”

Supporters could get their first glimpse of the player this evening when the New Cumnock side take on Auchinleck Talbot at Loch Park.

He's not the first member of the Gilmour family to pull on the red jersey of the Glens. 

Billy trained with the team last summer to keep his fitness ticking over. They were managed by ex-Ayr United and Hearts striker Ryan Stevenson at the time.

Gilmour sat out of Brighton's 2-1 loss at Anfield on Sunday as he set fans on red alert following a social media post. 

He took to his Instagram story to show his leg was in a brace. This followed a rash challenge on Northern Ireland's Brodie Spencer last Tuesday night on Scotland duty.
