    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

    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.

    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.

    U18s:

    GK:
    S.Naylor (second year)
    T.Bilson (first year) - signed from Leicester
    C.Tyler (U16) - played for Wales U15 this season

    DEF:
    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

    MID:
    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.

    ATT:
    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.

    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.
