Youngsters won the Lancashire cup tonight against a poor Wigan side. Very one sided.

A couple of new faces on display. A massive centre back named Ash Phillips. Handle himself well, very suprise to learn that he turned 16 this year as he was a big filled Out unit. 

Charlie weston, midfielder, Just turned 17. Was on the bench for the first team in preseason. Really like the look on him. Accomplished two way midfielder with good passing. Probably going to be fast tracked to U23 like Garrett Last year. 

delighted for the players who played and won the final. 

I believe Mike Sheron was in charge of the team for game

Yes, Sheron was in charge. Probably an obvious choice for the U23 job after Barr.

The opposition was too poor to really judge the performance. The most positive was the the two U18 players. Phillips might event be U16 since he turned 16 in June. The big powerful centre-half played for the U18 last season at 15, so will be interesting to see if gets U23 football this season. 

Thought Butterworth was dissapointing, lost possession multiple times by taking on players and overdoing it. Greedy and seems to have a bit of attitude. Not fond of tracking back either, which you can get away with on this level, but not on senior. Obviously talented, but could probably do with a reality-check of a loan. 

The trio of McBride, Burns and Vale on the other hand will put in a shift. Always liked Vale who is a decent allround striker. Has outgrown U23 and needs to kick-on. McBride is the best finisher, clinical striking technique and composed. Good work-rate, decent footwork and decent pace. Another who could benefit from a loan.

Love to watch Sam Burns as a fan. Stocky little bugger with a big heart. Some similarities with Dickov. Not the most composed finisher, but good pace and good positioning means he gets at the end of a lot of chances. Only got a 1-year extension so will probably  stay at U23 to earn another contract.

JP wasn't let go. PG has been in Scandinavia for a bit....I hate to say it, but 2 good additions in my opinion 

No need to hate to say it really it sounds like a bit of positive news.

Now if they could find Alex Neil a job as well......

Do we reckon they are ramping up to offer him the job? Is he the guy that will takeover when Mowbray inevitably fucks it after 6 games?

Probably not although i'd give him a try but god knows what he'd be left with to work with.

He'd be a brave man to take it on, what we don't want though is him having to work with the same backroom staff.  Lowe and Venus must be gone as well otherwise it's pointless.

Nothing about Garrett?

From the Leeds and Bolton displays - I would have this lad in my first team setup from the off this season. Especially when Travis looks so far off the pace.

His tackling is very good, he reads the game well. I thought his first touch passing and movement against leeds made him stand out.

Excited to see how he gets on.

Garrett definitely deserves to be in the team.

Surprised Butterworth has been staying on the bench after his very good displays.
