Welcome to the Youth thread for the 23/24 season.
Lyons-Foster, Santiago, possibly Sayers. Paskotsi if he is sufficiently back on his feet. I believe Soonsup-Bell was promised a loan.So I'm guessing that we'll see loan deals for Devine, White, Craig, Parrott, John and probably Scarlett (depending on what happens with Kane). Any other players we think should get a loan this season?
Woah, what happened there??? Had such high hopes for him, and didn't he leave because he thought he was too good to languish in the youth team any longer?After a year out of the game Nya Kirby has signed for Oxford City who were just promoted to the National League.
Not exactly. Chelsea tapped him up when he was still an U16 and Kirby turned down our offer of a scholarship. We explained to Kirby and Chelsea that we were going to kick up a stink and make the move as difficult as possible and Chelski decided to drop it. That left Kirby pissing in the wind. He had trials at the Arse and I think Liverpool but they passed on him and he ended up having to drop down a level with Palace who are a Cat 2 academy. Unfortunately for Nya Roy Hodgson was the manager during his time at the club and Hodgson rarely gave youngsters a chance. He had a couple of meh loans in League One and Two and then got released. I have no idea what he's been doing for the last 12 months because he doesn't appear to have been trialling with anyone, at least not that I can find. Now he's playing for Oxford City who got tonked 5-2 in their first game of the National League season and are favourites to get relegated.Woah, what happened there??? Had such high hopes for him, and didn't he leave because he thought he was too good to languish in the youth team any longer?
