    Interesting question here: Who from the U23 squad do you most want to see in a 1st team game before the end of the season?

    George Hunt been loaned out to Hounslow according to MAD.

    As he's coming to the end of his apprenticeship is this an indication he's being released and attempting to help him find a club?

    Under 18s finish their league campaign tomorrow with a home again against Crystal Palace being played in Hemel Hempstead.

    This is the rearranged fixture for the one abandoned a few weeks back.

    KO 12 pm

    Other than the obvious (Mr Burroughs) who is tipped to progress well?

    Ta very much. Apart from Harland and Taylor I'd seen the other names in academy games to some degree or another.

    On the less happy side are you allowed to confirm what happened to the rest of the second years? As far as I've heard only Jack Burroughs of the second years was offered a contract.

    From above George Hunt signed for Bournemouth and I believe Morgan Crowther and George Membrillera have found new clubs too. But what about Tom Bilson, Josh Endall, Dylan Fixter, Costelus Lautaru, Luke Rowe, Lewis White and Aaron Whitmore?

    I'm no authority on the matter but Will Bapaga played a number of games in U18 and scored a few goals, and even made a couple of U23 appearances. The other names that seemed to crop up most often were Costa and Pitts-Eckersall but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    Interesting Bapaga has literally just been taken on and is straight in with the first team.

    Let's hope the right back that joined from West Brom isn't as silly as the last one.

    4-3 opening day win for the U18.

    Rodber, Howley, Ward and Nee got the goals.

    Pretty sure Howley and Rodber are U16s. Sheff Utd are normally very strong so that's a great result.
