THIS tough centre-back has made life difficult for a number of centre-forwards across the region already.
McKellan was part of the successful St Francis team that won the league with coaches Philip Angus and Evan Kirtley.
He has slotted in well to life at Dyke House and has shown the sort of defensive quality which helped St Francis to also reach the final of a cup in the Teesside league in 2014.
His performances led to interest from Newcastle and Hartlepool and he has trained regularly with the Magpies.
Mckellan was gutted that his own goal helped Dyke House lose out in the English Schools' Cup at the last-16 stage, but he recovered to help celebrate successes in the Northern Education Cup, the town cup and the five-a-side tournament.
