Plenty been announced so far.

No point announcing any news until it's confirmed.....club officials are allowed the odd bit of time off!!

Suspect that might be it for friendlies ...quite a "fair few". Majority of them away for a reason I guess.

If they donít want the Reserves playing on it maybe they donít want it over used for Friendlies.  They need to keep it in decent nick for the 8 Academy students they have signed up. 
 
Are there any Sports that are 8 a-side ?  General question as nothing much going on at the moment

Disappointing  Academy numbers......I happened to see that Alvechurch had 150 turn up for their U18-21 Academy trials and had to extend the event to run over two days. Obviously their catchment area is vastly diff, but I wonder what they are doing that is drawing them in

Our Academy is 16-18 year olds, not 18-21 so don't know if that makes a difference?

Shame the numbers don't appear to be higher, although given it's only the first year of it, maybe that was to be expected? Be interesting to know how many academy players other non-league clubs had in their first year?

Thatís right Paul, itís early days.  I think the reason a club like Dereham are so successful with their Academy is through the tie-up with Easton College.   Why are we not tied up with our local College.  Surely that has to be high on the list to make it work.

Haven't we got a tie up with Gresham College?   :dontknow:

I thought the Gresham tie up involved Ray Hall.  Is he involved with the New Academy?
