Could I ask someone with more knowledge of the youth team - what is the thinking with two of the three pro contracts given to keepers.
Is one far better than the other, meaning he is likely to be on the bench, and the other for the youth team?
Does it also suggest we are going to gamble with one senior keeper?
Presume they are the same age, and just seems a bit odd to me to have two.
These 3 players were given contracts early, probably too early, but that is the nature of things now. Players used to complete their 2 years then sign a contract if they were good enough. Now though any player that shows promise is quickly signed up before they are poached by other clubs.
How are our Galloway and the other lad doing at Leeds?
Youth players signing a contract are at the learning stage where they need games.
With not having a reserve side, they go from playing thirty or so games a season for the youths to less than a dozen games a season, unless they are in the unlikely situation of commanding a regular place in the first eleven,
