Reserve Team

2 posts in this topic

We are all hoping for a big crowd v Wigan which will bring in much needed cash to the coffers. Given that our squad has a number of players who cannot be named in the match day squad, would it be sensible for the club to use some of the money made to arrange a series of reserve/trial matches so that injured, unselected players get a run out? I'm not talking about weekly fixures perhaps only once/twice a month.

 

If we'd had a reserve team perhaps lads like Lillycrop would have got the game time Glenn alluded to him needing in order for him to develop his skill sets whilst it would also allow injured players to prove their fitness. It would also be a great opportunity to trial some of the local amateur/released players who Glenn may have an eye on?

 

I'm sure the coaching staff would welcome this. 

 

Just a thought!

I believe that plans along these lines were well advanced before the CC draw. It may surprise some people to know just how much it costs to run a reserve team, however.
