Our next generation are living up to the standards set by their predecessors after they secured the Barclay’s Premier Reserve South title today.
This means Kevin MacDonald, his staff and the second string have now taken the title four times in the last five seasons, and will now most likely face Manchester United in the National Play Off.
With so many of the core of the second string being promoted up to first team level, it’s an even bigger achievement for the younger lads, many of whom made their reserve debuts this term before becoming regulars and most of them aren’t out of short trousers.
New names to watch for, Grealish, Drennan, Burke, Taylor and Graham are five obvious ones that have come to the attention of fans following their performances but they are certainly not alone. Known quantities such as Carruthers, Cameron, Johnson, Siegrist etc have all also continued to show good development this season.
Progressing well in the inaugural NextGen series was another bonus this season aswell.
Anyway enough babbling!
Well done lads, for some it’s another medal, for others it’s their first at this level. The first of many hopefully!
Our final game of the season is against Fulham, but it’s an irrelevance as neither Arsenal nor WBA are in a position to catch us at the top of the table.
