Do the academy players pay subs to play out of interest?
I don't know the answer to that I'm afraid.

I do know that one of the factors that enabled us to keep running the academy when other clubs would have closed it was the financial assistance provided by player's parents and sponsors. That was needed at the time because the matched funding we had from the league disappeared when we got relegated out of it.

I thought one third of incoming transfer monies spread over 3 years was dedicated to the academy? I keep hearing "oh some of that money will go to the academy".

I can't remember not seeing the academy lads at a home game for years. Reckon the KFC theory is the answer here.
