We have seen last year, that buying players who are the wrong side of 30 gets you know were. Looking at the latest signings all the players seem to be early 20s which is what you need.

Get the academy set up, promote from within & get some decent signings when needed, I think that's the way forward.

We had Tommy Makinson ,Burguess from Wigan on our academy but when the big club come they go aka Chris hill too
So having a reserve side is great but the best get picked off

Then maybe academy/reserve rules need to be amended so the main club supporting their developement get first dibs.

Agreed. I'm sure we will see some experience added to the squad, but preferably not as much as in 2017!

the reserve / academy side cost about £90.000 to run .would imagine a minimum of £5.00 per match to watch, we used to charge 2.00 and most people complained,that's if they didn't sneak in without payment. To have stewards would put the expense up. LSV have to abide with rules so is really out of reach ( unless its some sort of knockout game)
