Promising Hibs youngster Sam Stanton has the heavy weight of expectation on his shoulders due to his surname and has now committing his future to the club when he signed a new three-year deal. Stanton made his debut at the start of the year and has forced his way into manager Pat Fenlon's first-team plans with some impressive perfromances. It is not just a surname that got Sam the deal as he has started to make his way on ability and turned down Manchester United in order to stay in Scotland. Stanton said: "They asked me down for a trial when I was with Hutchie Vale just before I came to Hibs. I didn't go, partly because I'm a Hibs fan and partly because I was so young. Then I came to Hibs when I was 12 and really enjoyed it, so I made the right choice. Signing this contract is a massive achievement for me and I'm delighted. Hopefully I can enjoy a good few years here with Hibs. I've been working hard in the gym after training and I've also been doing some boxing sessions. Playing-first team football is a big difference to playing for the youth team because of the level of physicality. But I'm growing all the time and I feel I'm getting stronger, so hopefully I'll get there soon."
