    A young U18 side featuring 3 U16s and a lot of first year scholars beat Huddersfield 3-1 this afternoon.

    Naylor

    Green
    McMahon
    Eccles
    Hickman

    Burroughs (U16)
    Johnson

    Smith
    Finn
    Hunt (U16)

    Crowther (U16)

    Kyle Finn, Morgan Crowther and Lewis Green scored the goals to ensure an 11th consecutive win.

    Any word on how promising the three U16's are supposed to be, STP?

    He's made 7 starts, 6 subs and scored 2 so far for the U23s this season.

    Source: Coventry City Under-23s - YouthHawk

    Edit: from the same site: Devon KE has scored 8 in 19 starts. Pretty decent record IMO.

    Hunt joined from Southampton and Crowther joined from Blackburn. Burroughs is a local lad who has come through the system. Difficult to judge how promising they are but apparently all 3 didn't look out of place on Saturday and Crowther even scored with a nice turn of pace and a confident finish.

    It's a shame Ngandu is injured (I think) because he probably would have been involved too

    I believe we have also signed a LB from Forest and a CM from Wolves. Possibly through recommendations from Scott Curry (Head of Academy Recruitment, previously at Wolves) and Tony Cook (Head of Academy Coaching, previously at Forest)

    Lost 2-1 against a physical Birmingham side. U23 season looks over after a good start. Tom Bayliss scored a great goal though according to the Twitter feed as he continues to develop into a fine player

    This is the table with 4 games remaining:

    9 points from the next 4 games and the title is ours regardless of Charlton's results. Got Palace home and away, Crewe away and Barnsley at home
