An assist on his return
Eaden delighted with player pathway to Sky Blues first team
apart from ponti who else like thats under 18 looks have bags potential?
Ponticelli is actually classed as an 'U19' now, was U18 last year.
Wouldn't say there's that much in this current U18s side. Decent hardworking team but no real standouts. The group the club have high hopes for are the U16s. If I had to pick three out of the current 18s who could have decent careers I'd go Billy Stedman (AM), Ross McMahon (CB) and Josh Eccles (DM).
In the 23s Tom Bayliss is the one to watch. Been in the squad few times this season. Another Leicester lad like Stevenson and Thomas, excellent passing range. I read that Spurs were interested in him a few months back
The standout player in the 18's currently is Lewis Green, Billy is also a very talented lad.
Couple of decent prospects in the 17's
The under 15's and 16's have a number of players that if they reach their potential will be exciting, but still a long way to go..
Bayliss, Finn and Thompson will be the 3 that progress be that with Coventry or elsewhere. The interest they have had from other, highflying clubs, has been well discussed. One of them turned down a big move over the summer but with all the hype around Ponticheli they do get overlooked by the fan base!

Nicky Eaden moving to Chesterfield apparently as assistant manager. Done a good job here, wonder who we'll appoint next? Carsley would have been a great appointment after he left Man City but he just recently took the same role at Blues
Who's their manager?
It looks like they're hiring Jack Lester - who Eaden played with at Forest.
Probably not a massive surprise. When our number two had his health problems we went outside and brought in the guy from Chelsea Academy instead of asking Nicky Eaden to step up
Christ, what was wrong?
U18s lost 4-0 to Millwall this morning. Played 7, Lost 7.
How did the u16,s get on ?

What's the score with the 18s? Bad start but is that levels or performance?
A lot of talented players from last years team graduated to U23s, and the new crop of 1st years that replaced them wasn't as good.
The current U16s group is highly-rated, which is why we're seeing a lot of them make the premature step-up, but they're 2-3 years younger than the U18s they're going up against.
U16 GK Cian Tyler is currently playing up a year with the Wales U17s in their Euro Qualifying campaign. He already has his scholarship
Young Kenilworth goalkeeper Cian Tyler signs for Sky Blues
Coventry City XI: Addai, Ford, Hyam, Leahy, Maycock, Eccles, Di Kelly-Evans ©, Bayliss, Finn, Haynes, Thomas.
Subs: Bilson (GK), Burroughs, Green, Doyle
Looks like with all of the loans going out and use in first team, the u23's wont be as strong now.
Haynes playing further forward then?
Saving him for tomorrow
Been saying for a while I like the idea of him playing in a advanced role opposite JJ.
All the attributes are there, let's hope MR tries it in the 1st team
Talented U16 CM Dan Lafferty has been called up by Northern Ireland U17s.
He becomes the fourth player of the the original U16 group to get international recognition after Rowe (England U16), Tyler (Wales U17) and McCann (England U16)
So he did!
No idea of team, but U23 are losing to Palace
Pontichelli with a penalty they equalise immediately 2-2
We only have 4 subs?

Does anyone know if there is a live stream for tonight's youth cup game?
