    OK, we don't produce "forwards" then.

    Would Peter Ward have come into that category? Signed from, then non-league, Burton for £4,000(?) played in the reserves for some time, and scoring. Fred Binney was then dropped for the away game at Hereford, Wardy comes in and scores in the first minute and the rest is history.

    My thoughts? It’s probably easier to develop players, especially strikers, in the lower divisions. Further up the ladder it’s a case of buying the finished product.
    Ward was signed as a 20-year old in 75, and made his debut in March 76, so not exactly a BHA product. Agree with your other point though, its far, far harder for a young forward to get his shot in a PL side. But we've failed to produce one who can even do Championship, to be fair.

      As long as we can survive in the top division, I think that then" second" team is irrelevant.

      There are very few who are expected to make the step up and if we want to strengthen the first team we go out and buy players.

      So the Finnish goalie has gone, this young lad also.

      We sign a Nigerian, a reserve keeper, a Romanian. That really says it all for our second stringers.

      Come on people, you have a lot of this coming up, please remember one simple fact:-

      The Albion is now one of 'those' clubs not one of the 72 'other' clubs.
      Yes but if only we were in Division 2 these players would get more of a chance

      As usual this is an over simplification written in a style that makes it impossible to tell what you really mean.

      The whole point of Lancing is that we’ll eventually produce players who can play for and against “those” clubs. It’s not an overnight process though.

      It’s hard to discern real quality at such young ages, due to physical development, so there’s an inevitable gamble going on. Some players, like it or not, will be brought in to the U23s to make the U23s competitive. We’ll have no intention of playing them in the first team but they’ll be there so that our real development targets don’t leave due to bad results.

      If you get it right - and Southampton for one have proven you can - it can make a huge difference. But by definition it doesn’t happen overnight.

      Looked one of the most promising in the handfull of under 23 games I watched. Shame, but there really is a huge difference between slowly breaking into matchday squad in championship which he could possibly do, and getting a run out in the EPL.

      Wow. Love the club. But iI bet serious money we'll never get a first team regular from our youth set up.
      Spectators arriving by ferry will usually have to take the direct train from Newhaven, (or by direct train from Portsmouth) although berthing is available for smaller vessels in the nearby harbour. Spectators arriving by charter plane or commercial flights are advised to board the direct train from Gatwick Airport.

      In fact I'd be happy to bet every penny I own that the entire youth team from u23 down don't play 20 games in our first team.

      So why bother? Bjordal's departure is very disappointing news for me. I thought he was a terrific prospect but at least we've got Sunderland 's cast off goalkeeper.

      I think we've received a fee here, so if we can develop players and sell them on ( even if they don't make a first XI appearance) then it's worthwhile. If the academy can finance itself to a degree until the next Lewis Dunk comes along it's a great asset.
