anybody any idea of the cost of setting up and running a reserve or u20 side for a season, we need to be bringing our own players on and into first team

I think at a supporters meeting Mark said it was around 20/25k a year.

When I was talking to Mark at beginning of season he said they were looking to 're-launch the 2nd team depending how this season went because it would cost at least 25k!! The higher you finish the more prize money you get

I am pretty sure this year the Champ clubs got 90K so what will the clubs spend more than double on next season? Will it just be higher payments to players or should the money be used to develop the game rather than just making players better off? I think someone said running a second string costs £25K per year. I think all clubs should have to run a second team if this is the case and start developing local talent. Spend the money on getting all the fat kids to run around a bit.


I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

Agreed , all teams in this league should have a second team. While the extra money I'm sure is welcome if you are a player it doesn't help the wider game.

You're right on both counts PM. 90K is what all Championship clubs get this year and we really should all have a second team. However the concept and benefit of second teams was critically damaged, in my opinion, by the age limitation regulations that were brought in. I have yet to see any evidence that SL has benefitted from this and certainly it was a hindrance to Championship clubs. I know that I'm an old fogey but I would love to see a reversion to the simple concept of A teams, at least at our level, with no age constraints: these offered the perfect balance between development, injury rehabilitation, recovery from loss of form, game practice against mature players and simple "second teamers" hoping for their chance.

 

Maybe I am too simplistic in my views.

Like most of us BSJ,  you obviously don't see the bigger picture. Maybe someday the think tank behind the under 20 (or 19 or 21 depending on the year) concept, will deign to explain to us what we have all been patently missing. I won't hold my breath.

I agree with you bsj i used to enjoy the A team games and even went to some away games , we occasionaly got some very good gates at the A team and a good atmosphere ,one thing not mentioned was that it was a good vehicle for older experienced players to teach the young guns the game.
