This may well turn out to be true but it is worth noting that both Jay and Ethan made appearances for the first team in their first season after leaving us. Although, of course, neither of them have completely proved themselves yet it does seem the case that only players with a genuine expectation of standing out at a higher level are leaving us at 16 and everyone else is choosing to stay at City.Agree with Mike.
Chrisene will go to Villa. He'll play some U18 matches, possibly some U23's. He will then go on loan to Walsall or Oxford to get some game time. Then he'll come back.
Then in 2021/22 season he may go on a season long loan to get adult football. Shrewsbury say.
Then he'll come back again
But he'll be being paid a lot more than he would at ECFC.
