Congratulations to the Blades of the future
« on: April 19, 2016, 12:11:57 pm »
So both our U18 and U21 teams have qualified for the play-offs in their respective leagues. What a fabulous performance and a welcome indication that the academy is doing things right and we may have some talent to look forward to in the future.

Adkins hasn't been afraid to let some of the youngsters have a run recently and that can only be a good thing, rather than the past habits of bringing in journeymen older pros who haven't added to anything except their own bank balance.

The future's bright - it's red and white!!

They have had a great season, and lets hope we can keep hold of the good ones.

If they get through the play offs what leagues do they go into?

I don't believe they change leagues Bolton. The Professional Development Leagues (at our level i.e. outside the Premiership teams) have North and South Divisions. The top two in each league then go into a play-offs to determine who the overall champions are.

U21 North
1st Huddersfield
2nd Blades

U21 South
1st Charlton
2nd Milwall

We play Charlton in the first round

BTW - Wendies finished bottom!!!  :DD :DD

U18 North
1st Forest
2nd Blades

U18 South
1st Watford
2nd Charlton

We play Watford in the first round

Wendies finished 6th
