The u23’s takes up alot of the budget just to play 18 or so games a season, but on the plus side it gives injured players a chance to play a reasonable standard of football before getting put back into the first team.
It is a luxury we just can’t afford at this present time and I think we will try and go down the friendly games route to give injured players a chance to play.
It will hopefully also give the academy some more funds to bring on the u18’s as these players look like they will be a big part of next seasons squad.
That squad has been quite successful this season with 4 players being given contracts including scunny lad Harry Lewis, Along with dawson,(if he stays)barks,shrimpton,jessop and silva from last season plus Pugh and hornshaw from 2 seasons these youngsters should I believe be given a chance early on in preseason to see what they can do.
