ForrestGrump Posted April 29, 2020 Share Posted April 29, 2020 (edited) I’m sure this has been asked on here before but I’d like to get as many takes on this as possible. In regards to players aged 21 and below, what’s the best way to help them develop? My approach is predominantly to let 16-17 year olds from the youth intake have a season in the u18’s (Division 1 North, u19’s Champions Cup), and loan out 18-21 year olds who aren’t going to feature in the first team for the coming season. My U23 squad (Premier Division 1) usually has a fair number of poor players because the decent prospects are loaned out. What I’m finding is that even after a good season out on loan, attributes aren’t increasing as much as I’d like. I know there are other factors in play, but this still happens to players with good personalities and high determination. Would it be more effective to keep them at the club and train specific attributes, and play them in the U23 games? We have state of the art training and youth facilities, and any player who I think will be a decent prospect gets moved to the senior squad as we have over fifteen 4-5 star coaches.
