It seems to be the way many are moving forward. I see it more of a long term thing and not a whim. I would have thought (if its not already being done) that some scouting should be done at the local schools and colleges. I can remember when I was at KES there would be scouts at our matches (can remember a Norfolk schools guy and a guy from Peterboro) in attendance looking at one or two of our guys when we were at home to Boston Grammar.

The issue isn't necessarily the scouting in terms of getting kids to come, its what the Academy involves - this is their post-16 education and the Lynn Academy is currently untested so if, for example, you were a young lad doing your GCSEs this summer and were even thinking of committing to a two year course would you (or your parents) be keen for you to go to Lynn?  IC is undoubtedly a draw but DESA has a proven track record to point to, including many lads going to the states post qualification as did the CoWA course in the past.  Sometimes reinventing wheels doesn't look such a good idea.

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.

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!

Can't think why the club is having difficulty attracting new sponsors...

Chilly, if you decide against sponsoring the Reserves ( perhaps understandably) then why not look to sponsor something with the first team.  This would perhaps give a better shop window for your Company and in turn support the Club and Stephen in his ambitions.
