Just noticed that Jason Lowe is the England U-20 captain. How good actually is he?

This is a hard one to call, been out on loan and done well (Oldham I think) until he gets a few first team games we wont know.

TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More!!

Cameron Lindsay is coming back to NZ and will sign for the Wellington Phoenix.

Lindsay joins Phoenix but awaits clearance

Cant recall anyone mentioning him, so i guess he cannot have been that impressive whilst over there.

A comment from a very highly respected coach/manager in the game:

'Rovers U18's are the best team we have played in pre-season, they had everything pace power the lot'

They have played much bigger teams than us so far in pre-season.

MAybe we should give em a run out next game.
So the Gap finally closes, Didn't last long did it. They came, they saw, they folded without a fight.

Just saw Kamy on twitter saying Hugo Fernandez grabbed another brace. I take it he's progressing well, anyone care to shed some light on his progress and attributes? Cheers!

Think he can play there but that he plays mostly as a midfielder. Thought he was a holding midfielder but seems to be scoring a fair bit so not sure. Still young but must be 18 or so now?

I was thinking just the same as he seems to be having a few stormers recently by all accounts.

The Academy are up to play Newcastle on 27th. If they progress they will play Fulham or BURNLEY in the semis...

Rovers in to the Semis!!!!!!!!!!!

Twice coming from behind against Newcastle to draw 2-2 after normal time, stayed that way during extra time before winning 3-0 on pens, including 2 saves by Matty Urwin, Cotton scoring the winning pen!

Nice to hear some good Rovers-related news for a change. Great effort from the Rovers youth team, we may need a few of them to step up to first team squad next year so keep it going lads!

Anyone any ideas on why Cotton has been on the bench on recent matches? I was under the impression he was the standout player in the team (from what I read and hear). Is it injury related?

Not yet Baz, they need to see off Fulham first.

Well done to our Youths. Good stuff.

Proud tonight! Delighted. Some of these guys can jump straight into the senior XI next season if we do go down. Fernandez and O'Connell are just two, not to mention Cotton.

Unfortunately the cost cutting exercise at Ewood has meant cut backs on kit.

Brilliant to see the young lads go through.

Here's hoping for the young Dingles in the semi-final as it will lift the supporters and the club no end if that were to happen. However, Burnley have a very very tough tie at Fulham and I cannot see them progressing.

Can't believe I actually want them to win.

These guys are reasons to be optimistic. Quite a few of the players in our Academy are absolute quality. Must be one of the best Academy's around.
