On the table
The fixtures have the disclaimer "All weekend kick-off times 15:00 unless stated. All midweek kick-off times 19:45 unless stated"
With absolutely none of the listed fixtures kicking off at those times in all of the 27 pages.
EFL at their finest.

Made I laugh.

And the disclaimer is included 27 times, but never applicable! Hilarious.

So who is left in our U18s?

The website lists;

Felix Norman - released?
Jack Stafford
Cheick Diabate
Joe Belsten - released?
Jordan Dyer
Will Dean
Tom Preece
Louis Morison
Harry Gardner
James Dodd
Lewis Wilson
Theo Simpson - out on loan?

I'm sure last year Charlie Lawrence played a few games - is he still about?

I've also seen names like Moyse, Veale, Clark, Iseguean, Chrisene and Lovett in the past year or so. I am presuming Stansfield has gone?

All gets confusing outside of the first team for me!

Far away across the field
I'm intrigued that this has not been publicised.
Seems a lot of things are going on behind the scenes that we are not told about. Nothing nefarious, just poor communication.

For example, have the squad numbers been announced?

Whenever it's announced, be prepared for bad news about Forte.

It’s not surprising that you find it confusing. The information on the website is seriously out of date and confusing/confused. For example the first team has new signings like Ward Maxted and Atangana all with new squad numbers. But also includes Belsten who has apparently left. My personal bugbear is the artificial (and wrong!) dates of birth for Dodd and Dyer now in the first team squad. They weren’t born on 1 January *1901*.

Also disappointing is that line ups aren’t given for the U18 s in the match reports on the website. And as others have pointed out there has been no announcement this year of anyone signing their first pro contract ( or indeed of those signing scholarship terms?)

So like you I am left scrabbling for information.

Harry Gardner has also left (did so quite some time ago if I recall).

Incidentally, Charlie Lawrence is still around and played at Exmouth in the pre-season friendly the other week. Charlie is on a professional contract and is likely to go out on loan this season.
