Lads with the silverware today:
U23s against Ipswich at Portman Road (7pm): Addai (GK), Green, Thompson, Harries, Camwell, Sayoud, Bayliss, Shipley, Spence, Dev. Kelly-Evans (C), Smith.
Green is a 17 year old first year scholar who plays at right back. Northamptonshire lad. Been impressed by him this season, will be interesting to see how he fares tonight in his first U23 involvement
yes i've seen him a couple of times,looks strong gets forward well and crosses are good.
Not a great night for the U23's losing 6-0 at Portman Road
REPORT: Ipswich Town U23 6-0 Coventry City U23 - Young Sky Blues suffer heavy defeat at Portman Road
Indeed. Ending the season badly after having a storming start
U18 semi-final highlights, three lovely well worked goals from Stedman, Finn and Ponticelli:
U23s play Millwall tomorrow at the Ricoh. 2pm kick off. Free entry and free parking.
2-1 win for the U23s in their final game of the season today. Devon Kelly-Evans and a 90th minute winner from Jordan Ponticelli for Nicky Eaden's side who finish 4th in the Development League South.
4th still isn't bad at all.
There's only 6 in the league

There's 10, we finished 4 points off 2nd. Probably would have won it like the U18 league if we had Thomas and Stevenson playing all year but that's football and what U23 football is for in the main
So now the regular season is over for the U18s, I thought I'd post up squad for ext season (hopefully). It's early yet and could be a few changes and additions. Age groups are in 2017/18 season.
S.Naylor (second year)
T.Bilson (first year) - signed from Leicester
C.Tyler (U16) - played for Wales U15 this season
R.McMahon (second year)
L.Green (second year)
L.White (first year)
A.Whitmore (first year)
D.Fixter (first year) - signed from Nottingham Forest
B.Rowe (U16) - England U15 camp this season
J.Eccles (second year)
B.Stedman (second year)
L.Doyle (second year)
S.Green (second year)
T.Johnson (second year)
G.Hunt (first year) - signed from Southampton
L.Rowe (first year) - signed from Wolves
J.Burroughs (first year)
C.McCann (U16) - England U15 camp this season
J.Ngandu (U16) - 3 goals for U18s this season as an U15. Injured at moment.
M.Crowther (first year) - signed from Blackburn
Losing a strong second year group in Ponticelli, Finn, Hickman, Bayliss, Camwell etc. so will be interesting to see how they do. Expect the talented trio of B.Rowe (#5), J.Ngandu (#8 or #10) and C.McCann (#7) to play up.
Some very promising under 16's from the look of it
Yes definitely, think this group could be really good. Natural footballers. Some good players further down too but the hardest challenge is keeping them. I think CCFC lost a good U14 to a local club recently - no idea if he was released (end of U14 season you either get released or offered a two year contract for U16s, no U15 age group) or the club paid for him/the player wanted to move.
Not sure. Only the people at the top know/will know that.
What I do know is next years scholars signed their scholarship forms today for the next two years.
Goalkeeper Tom Bilson, right-back Aaron Whitmore, centre-back Lewis White, left-back Dylan Fixter, centre midfielders Jack Burroughs and Luke Rowe, attacking midfielder George Hunt and striker Morgan Crowther. Might be one or two more aswell.
does anyone know whether any of last years u18s have signed professional contracts with us yet.
All 7 are training so believe all 7 signed but there hasn't been any club announcement
Just been announced on the offal and I posted a new thread about it too, for your appraisal STP
U18s 6-5 winners against Wigan in opening pre-season game. Jack Burroughs, Sion Green, Jonathan Ngandu, Costa Lautaru, Tyler Johnson, Ross McMahon with the goals
Well done to our U16 side who beat Salford City's U18s 5-1 last night. This is a very exciting group as I have gone on record saying before with many good players but the next step of course is to see if they can get around the U18 squads
The 23s play Southampton behind closed doors today and the 18s have a tournament at WBA at the weekend against the hosts and QPR. They have one or two more games after that before flying out to Holland on the 31st for two weeks
I went to watch the u18's beat Wigan 6-5 very entertaining and some good performances including the first years.On the other pitch the U16's were playing I watched some of that game aswell during breaks of play and very impressed with their attacking play think it ended 5-5 so plenty of goals.Looked to be a few scouts about not 100% sure but thought I saw Dave Jones any idea what he's doing now, also is Costa Lautaru a new recruit haven't heard of him before.
Yes , it was Dave Jones at the game , i was also at the games Agree 16's look to have a lot of potential , from what i understand we only have a small core of under 16's so presumably a good few of the team were under 15!,not 100% sure but if that is correct very exciting group coming through.
Yeah I thought the Wigan lads looked older and had a couple of bigger lads.
I wasn't there but I heard Johnny Ngandu scored two fantastic goals - one each for 16s and 18s. The 16s also have a good centre half and a winger/attacking midfielder who went to England training camps for their age groups. Believe the striker (tall lad with blonde hair) is promising aswell.
Lautaru is from local football and he's a forward, one of this years new scholars. Needed an attacker as only had one in the age group.
Not sure on numbers but I'd guess over half are U15. Most of the current 16s will/already have got scholars
The next home game is against Stoke on Tuesday July 25th at 6pm
Thanks for the updates STP I'M on holiday for the Stoke match but if you can post when you know of other fixtures that would be great.
Why have we not announced our cat 2 status all i have heard is were staying at higgs or does that mean we keep our cat 2 status automatically?
Well done to Charlie McCann who was involved in England's U16s 2-0 win over Uruguay
CCFC U16 Charlie McCann wearing #19 starts for England U16s against Scotland.
Finished 2-0 to Scotland. McCann played 60 minutes and did well for his first ever start.
McCann started and SCORED for England U16's as they beat Qatar 8-0.
#19 Charlie McCann with his England U16 teammates
Anyone who follows the Academy will tell you there's a lot of hype around this U16 group of ours. Ticking along very nicely but let's just see.
The U18s fly out to the Netherlands today for two weeks today before the season starts, they play Dutch champions Feyenoord on Friday
Is that Jonathan lad in the U18s? Can't remember his last name, remember seeing a video where he is scoring from everywhere and anywhere.
He's been with them in pre-season but not sure whether he's going on tour. I think he would have been around the England squads too but he's been injured a lot.
He is ridiculously talented. He just needs to stay focused, keep impacting games and the rewards will follow.
£4 adults, £2 concessions. Game to be played on Monday 15th Feburary at 7pm.
Sambou bags a brace, and a general...
Does anyone know if there is a live stream for tonight's youth cup game?
U18s in the FA Youth Cup tonight down Nuneaton... could see some goals - £3 entry....
Now that the U18s season has finished I thought I'd post this.
Some results have a link to a video on YouTube.
