Chris was a member of the Under 16 squad for season 2009/2010 and earned his call-up to full-time duties for the Under 19 side for season 2010/2011. 'Kano' had been a regular goal scorer in the youth setup had hoped to continue his progress the following season but he suffered a serious injury in a game against Hearts in mid-October 2011 and missed the rest of that season.
Chris was on fire for the Under 20s during season 2013/2014 as he netted 21 times in 18 games before joining Dumbarton on loan in December for the remainder of the season. Chris spent the first half of season 2014/2015 again on loan at Dumbarton, netting 15 goals in 21 appearances.
In February 2015 Kano won the SPFL Young Player of the Month for January and his outstanding performances saw him rewarded with a new contract taking him through to May 2018. Chris netted his first goal for the club in our last game of season 2014/2015 at Aberdeen as he came onto replace Steven MacLean and within seconds of coming on the young striker scored to give Saints the lead. It would prove to be the only goal of the match as Saints secured a fourth place finish in the Scottish Premiership.
