Hearts completed the signing of highly-rated Northern Irish teenage Bobby on a three-year deal in May 2018.

The versatile 18-year-old joined the Jambos from NIFL Premiership side Glenavon on an undisclosed fee.

Antrim-born Bobby has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in Northern Ireland after establishing himself in Glenavon’s first-team this season, both at left-back and up front.

He made 41 appearances and scored eight goals in all competitions, and bagged 12 assists in the league.

Nominated for the NI Football Writers’ Association Young Player of the Year Award, he’s already won Glenavon’s Young Player of the Year and Fans’ Player of the Year awards.

Capped at U21 level for Northern Ireland, Bobby was invited to train with Michael O’Neill’s senior squad, having already been spotted by Hearts scouts while playing for Glenavon.

Bobby broke into the Hearts first-team squad in March 2019 following injuries to Ben Garuccio to Demetri Mitchell and started the Scottish Cup semi-final win against Inverness. He went on to score his first professional goal in May 2019 against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
