Very interesting read about a lad we let go at sixteen now playing for a Swedish top flight club:

Further evidence that we should have been running an under 21’s set up years ago. He accepts that the club made the right decision as he would never have been first team ready at eighteen and would have been released.

Quite inspiring how persistent he has been to succeed despite several knock-backs. Makes you think of how many young players aren't offered pro deals and end up in the same position, and how many of our current U18 side, which although are doing well and top of their league, won't all be offered pro deals.
