    Has left us.
    Apparently he’s just signed an Apprenticeship with Grimsby.
    Just read that he’s scored around 200 goals in something like his last 60 games.

    If he’s banging in (on average) 3 goals plus a game then he must have something about him?

    He’ll be lost without his old team mate Mr Cholmondley-Warner.

    Yes but where? U12s, U14s, U16s or Crosby Colts on a Sunday. Never mentioned in U18s.

    Just turned 16. Makes Hilton’s decision to do away with the academy look better if we can’t hold onto the under 16s.

    At U16 this season.
    Left because of the EFL funding curtailment and what were back then rumours about closure at the end of this season – I guess?
    Two year Apprenticeship with GTFC.
    Good luck to the lad.
    I hope he makes it and makes their first team and goes on to smash in loads of goals.

    Good at 16 gone at 18, it’s a familiar story for the majority of young players in the pro game. He has a long long road in front of him like all the rest

    Yeah I wasnt sure of the level ,but he must have played at least one academy game as he bagged a treble against us in November ,left you in January and signed for us a few weeks ago .

    Like you say time will tell its very rare these kids break through ,so to some extent i get what Hilton says about the academy.

    But on the flip side we have Clifton who has become a superb player and could move for 1mil+ in the summer with quite a few big clubs interested .

    Might be that he knew you was closing yours though and thats the only reason he left -suppose a 2 year contract at 16 is a decent amount of time to see if he can make the grade . People saying we are in for another one on the fishies (not sure how reliable ) – that we are in for Shrimpton ,is he any good ?

    He may have thought the club was closing down he left early January before the take over, any illegal approaches made for him by the cods Richgy? After all cods are slippery creatures.

    I am sure that doesnt go on at any level (not)
    In reality if he was a potential superstar he would have been snapped up by a prem/champ academy , the hope will be he’s a half decent prospect who could come on and hopefully be a decent player , as with any young player though the odds are stacked against him .

    We had another couple of good ones over the last few seasons -Grist who signed for Leicester and Pollock who signed for Watford both who we managed to get fees for but only played for the first team briefly -anyone with decent potential is hoovered up quickly ; i suppose the key is getting the ones that arent too good but quite good who you can at least kerp for a minimal amount of time and get a fee for .

    With your chairmans ‘idea’ i sort of get it but do not understand how prime released academy players would drop so far dowm ,the good ones can surely get deals higher up -wait and see i guess .

    On another note -John Mcatee is now out of favour with the fans and Fishy i dont think they like it he’s getting a bit of a sulk on sometimes ,will be interesting when he goes to Luton to see what happens as he has not shone in league 2 .I can see him being back on loan at a league 2 club next season (not us )

    Wonder if McAtee helps Luton get promoted next season then goes on the bus tour round Luton singing ” who the f*** are Grimsby”?

    That’s McAtee’s problem unfortunately, no doubt he has a lot of ability but got the impression he thinks he’s better than he is. I think that’s where complacency comes in to play where he’s concerned.

    Ha ha he wont be doing that mate ,they might have already gone up -he wouldnt touch their first team , i have seen them play a few times got 4 strikers who are better than him and Cameron Jerome whos useful still he might be 6th choice at best ,cant see it though -maybe Lincoln or a Manchester based club on loan potentially Salford as thats where he is from and they will pay .

    He has fallen relatively out of favour with Hurst now ,doesnt play every week

    He has the ability to go higher but i suspect if he doesnt improve his attitude/consistency he wont go higher than league 1 .

    He was too good for the National though tbf .Suprised how that Lansgstaff has bagged so many making the step up ,some achievment that tbf

    Yes half decent player when used correctly (jd???) .. should fit in well at the cods with a name like SHRIMPton.

    I wish all the youngsters who leave the club well and regardless where they go hope they progress.
