I was delighted to hear – and pleased to report – that the meeting with Stanmore College went well last night and we have agreed a basis on which to go forward – with both parties committed to the future success of the Scholarship Scheme.
This is really important and hopefully we will see the benefits continuing to flow through to the first team in the coming years. Most of us will get a first opportunity to see the youth team in the FA Youth Cup game at Harefield, with the game likely to be on 26 September. But we have another trip to Harefield first!
I will post more about our junior / youth system in due course – never forget how important these are to the Club.
