THE EMERGENCE of an Under-21 team for the campaign ahead has given manager, Andy Morrell, a real boost...
“Its early days, but it’s great to have an extra pool of players,” he said. “From what I have seen so far, they are getting a good squad of players together and already one or two have caught the eye.
“We will look to work as closely as possible; the hope is that there will be players who can step up to the first-team, but similarly it gives those lads who are coming back from injury or not involved in the first-team the opportunity to get game time.
“That can only help us, so it has been a big plus to get an Under-21 up-and-running as indeed it is to see the way in which the Academy has developed in recent months.
“The under-21s will provide a stepping stone for us and we’re delighted to see the team preparing for the season ahead.”
