Which of this talented U18 group will be kept on as full professionals at the end of this season? - decision time now less than 6 months away.

We could keep on perhaps as many as 6 , in addition to Cox and Lee, because of the shape of the first team squad (thin squad with very few non first team professionals).

If it were as many as 6 who should it be? I'd be interested in the views of those who've seen a fair bit of this side.

There’s likely to be a few holes in the squad next season so we’re really going to need a few of these youngsters to step up.

Are you ruling out Andrew Sowden & Joe Wragg? And what about Scott Simmons? Or is he still a first year scholar?

I cannot remember the season, but there was one where only one second year trainee was released. This could be another instance. We always knew this group was a strong one as I think it was announced that it was the most academy players we had offered scholarships in one year. We have since added Borges and Daniels to that year group. Hopefully we can re-establish a strong u21 group.

Was it this year you were thinking of? 5 pro contracts dished out and it was good that we kept Archie Collins and Alex Hartridge!
