Got some from Owura Edwards going to Bristol City as well. It's hard to get these young lads into the first team when bigger clubs further up the pyramid pinch them before we get a chance.

The thing that strikes me is, if these lads like Edwards and Williams had never been at the County, they are exactly the sort of players we would be trying to sign on loan.

I'm sure Flynny has his reasons and they're good ones, but it just seems a massive shame these lads could go on to play against us in loan deals having never pulled on an amber shirt, not even in a meaningless cup game.

People will point to us making money on the young lads sold but in reality if all of them had played 5 games plus in the first team we are probably looking at an extra 6 figure fee on what we received. Instead of loaning back up full backs or back up 5th choice strikers or CB's the club should be putting an academy player in that place.

Perhaps, had either stayed, they would've seen game time this season. We've certainly seen some of the kids feature in the Paintpot trophy. Edwards is on loan at Bath, which suggests he might be ready for not much more than that. Lewis Collins made his league debut off the back of his performance in that.

I just think it's hard to breakthrough at this level, and if you're good enough to be close to that level, the bigger clubs are already aware of you well before you get on the pitch.

Collins scores again for FGR.
Nice to see Ben Tozer also on the score sheet.

Fun fact: with Wainwright, the Cardiff City academy has produced more current players for the national rugby team than the football team.

Grego Cox scored for Crawley yesterday.
Lets hope he doesn't go on a run though.
