Wasn't sure which thread to post this to but Jay Williams has been released by Harrogate after making just 4 appearances. Seems like we should trust the club's judgement on him? Perhaps wasn't given enough opportunities to shine in his time here though. Hopefully he can get some regular game time in the National League and build a platform for a FL career!

JB might have a different view as Jay was back training with us for final few sessions.

What does it cost to develop the average youth player, and how many of the total developed eventually command a transfer fee at what value for their first transfer? A figure for each division would also be useful. Do the sums and ta-da, no more guess work, you know if it’s worth it? (Ta-da is an anagram of data, see what I did there?)

I actually think too much emphasis gets put on youth players and an academy, I get the romanticism of a local player coming good but reality is we don't get to see the best of them anyway.

Name me one club with a top class academy that has progressed up through the league and held their own in the Championship or Prem WITHOUT a **** load of cash.

A decent youth system is helpful and important BUT if you don't have all the other pieces around it then it's pointless.

I haven’t bothered checking but where did our existing and recent players make the grade as a professional before sinking (or rising!) to our level?
