Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

I'd love to know the reason why we have never played Leeds at home at academy level for about four or five years?

Thought our academy were poor last season, though this was partially due to the better players being used in the reserves which should be beneficial to their development.

Do u reckon that has anything to do with all our prospects being in the reserves that went unbeaten. Oldest player in the reserves was Ramon silva 😂. Stick all of them in the academy side and we would have walked it

The reserves and academy fixtures don't clash most teams played their academy players in the reserves., the likes of Hanley, Halsall etc were too old for the academy team which had reverted to U18 last season.
