Interesting item on the club website. Very hard for young players to come through and play in a cut throat environment like the National League so I am not sure, in practice, if the change will make any difference.
Having read the club's statement, it's clear why the decision has been taken. The system is against us and because of the greed of parents and the poaching by other clubs, the club had no choice. Even if we get back into the league, I expect we'll give the new structure a chance before thinking about resurrecting the junior academy.
