Apart from Branthwaite recently, there doesn't seem to be many getting into the first team staying 11. Why do people think this is? Managers prefering to bring their own players in? They don't think the lads coming through from the youth team are good enough?

We have had good young players, they’re mostly playing for other teams: Henderson, Trafford, White, McCarron, Galloway, Dempsey, Potts, Madine, Aldred, Cook, Bowman, Brockbank, Branthwaite, Todd, etc. I’ve noticed Beech is very negative when talking about our academy, not sure there’s any love lost between him and the staff. I did wonder at the time if it was coincidence that Branthwaite was off like a shot when Beech took over.

Young Branthwaite was desperate to leave once he knew Everton was interested These opportunities might only come up once and it’s worked The contract he is on at Everton he wouldn’t have earned that much money if he had stayed at Carlisle until he was 36 I can tell you 100 % it absolutely nothing to do with Beech been manager So you needn’t wonder anymore

The giant wage increase , I would say with Branthwaite it's was more ,Beech was told not to use him incase he got injured .

We have a decent youth system.
We've been bringing players through and flogging them on at a profit since Mick Wadsworth days.

The trouble we have isn't the managers not using them, they do to a fair extent, it's the Board who can't refuse the offer of a packet of Cheese Xl and a promise to pay us £400,000 when they've played 30 times for England.
If you had the chance to play at Everton for example and be paid more, have access to a far more professional and prosperous set up you wouldn't even think twice would you?
As far as I can see we have the supply line, we just don't have the means to keep them long enough.

The top clubs have unbelievably efficient domestic and international scouting teams capable of finding and hoovering up local talent, the days of someone slipping under their radar seem a long way off. I expect Fishburn has been already watched and I'd say right now there's a 50/50 chance of a bid coming in and being accepted before he even starts a first team game for CUFC.

Maybe it's time to turn the spotlight on how well our Youth System develops young players ?

Third tier football should have an age limit placed on it, and the whole league should become a feeder for UK Footy.

Sweep away some of the relics in Boardrooms and old systems away, bring in new blood that is committed to developing Youth and allow us all to see the future stars of our game before they hit the big time.

This will automatically inject big lumps of money into the lower Leagues and reinvigorate the ailing beast that is lower league footy.

Branthwaite wasn’t on the radar till he was 16, Fishburn was playing junior football at under 16, not attached to an academy. There are late developers out there.
