    Found this on Cov mad

    Coventry City U18's start their PDL League 2 campaign with a trip to Colchester United.
    The Sky Blues travel to Colchester on Saturday August 16th before the next two Saturday's bring home games against Crewe and Cardiff City.

    Would a sub forum be better for the youth / development squad news?

    The only thing is that people moan they don't see them :(

    Stickys just get lost within the rest, a sub forum if used properly would be a lot better :)

    Is there enough content for a full forum? Posts seem to be quick match reports and the odd video or snippet about a player.

    And it all seems to come from AndyM and STP, don't want to overload them.

    Not that I'd complain if there is, love hearing about the kids coming through.

    To be honest I've always felt normal threads are best as they pop up when there's news and hide away if there isn't. If only one or two people are updating its easy enough for them to bookmark and bump the thread when needed.

    Whichever is easiest, I always think this sort of thing is quite good to read also.

    New posts for each game could be posted though as if it is one long thread people might not bother.

    Can we also have a sub forum for all the sub humans.

    Seems to be quite a few of them of here of late and I'm running out of cattle prods.

    How the U18s will likely line up vs Leicester.

    For some reason the image link seems to be broken on my iPhone but I can see it on my PC.

    Coventry are 2-1 up at half time thanks to goals from Dan Smith and Jacob Whitmore.

    Is the trialist an u18 trialist or is he one for the senior team?

    Most likely an Under 18. I'm not at the game, just getting all the relevant info off Twitter.

    Final score in the U18s game at the AHC is Coventry City 2-3 Leicester City. Dan Smith and Jacob Whitmore scored our goals.

    The U21s are playing a behind-closed-doors friendly vs Aston Villa.

    Here's the probable formation.

    Maddison in the first team squad then? I assume it'll be McQuoid to start Sat.

    Wouldn't read too much into that. Fleck is playing.

    Good point. Still funny to risk players you'd want. Swanson in for Fleck maybe?

    Chance for #CCFC. 46 mins - George Thomas gets past two #AVFC defenders, turns inside but his cross is turned wide by Miller. #PUSB

    Sounds like we're doing well from the updates. However I'm not sure how strong the Villa 11 is.

    Chance for #CCFC. 53 mins - Aaron Phillips finds Shaun Miller on the edge of the area who turned his defender and curled his shot wide.

    And here's the Villa side: Siergrist (GK), Leggett, Lewis, Wildin, Nehemie, Cowans, Calder, O'Brien, Sellars, Drennan, Graham.

    Chance for #CCFC. 57 mins - John Fleck drove past three #AVFC midfielders before finding Haynes who curled his shot over. 0-0. #PUSB

    Exactly, I'd be massively surprised if we didn't start with this weekend.

    Dev K Evans, is a great lad, level headed and is a very good prospect,, the club need to look after him, give him a pro deal and bring him on as they are did with Wilson.. I wish him well and hope him and his brother get the chance they deserve.
