Is that a fact that they only have eight signed up ? How can they play games without using kids from other places or bringing in some of younger Reserve team places on an ad hoc basis.

Surely Ian Culverhouse won’t want to put his name to this ?

Chilly are you still sponsoring the Reserves next season ?

After 16+ years what do you think we should do? When Graham is back from holiday we will then discuss and announce it on facebook probably!

Didn't we have the ex Everton scout who "found" Wayne Rooney! Perhaps someone needs to contact Andrew Gedge at the College as to why the academy tie up never happened. At least you would get a truthful answer.

All fair points KES80.  With promotion the gap down to the reserves is now too wide and with the new academy starting in September that has to be one of the main priorities for the club.  I guess it then depends on the level of games the academy can compete at as to how you then find suitable 'adult' football for those players and those that little bit older who might still be on the radar of the first team.  Personally I think loans to various local sides are a more viable option, yes it takes a bit more organisation and management, but probably a better way to develop individual players, in the way Natty Stewart and Harry Limb were sent out last season rather than trying to run another side that has very little relevance to the first team. 

If someone wanted to go through all the hassle of setting up a King's Lynn based team to compete in the Thurlow Nunn then I am sure the club would gladly look to loan players there but the focus of what is still a very limited infrastructure has to be on the first team and academy.

As for the current Wisbech move for the reserves this season, it smacks as a bit of an afterthought and I certainly wouldn't have thought this is anything more than a short term solution
How can EIGHT yes EIGHT signings be classed as an ACADEMY. at that rate they will play in a Lynnsport 5 a side league. Yet another Whim.
