Early life[edit]

Handling grew up in Haddington, East Lothian and attended Knox Academy.[2]

Career[edit]

He made his first team debut for Hibs as a substitute against Aberdeen on 14 May 2011,[3] becoming the fourth-youngest person to play for Hibs.[4] Handling agreed a new contract with Hibs later that year.[5]

Handling was loaned to Third Division club Berwick Rangers in March 2012. He scored two goals on his Berwick debut, a 2–1 win at Peterhead on 24 March.[6] He scored six goals in his first four games for the club, which gave Berwick a chance of qualifying for the end of season playoffs.[7]
