Young Robins Ready For 2014-15

3 July 2014

The youth team are back with new faces as the Youth Alliance fixtures are revealed.

It's not just the first team who are back in pre-season action with fresh-faced Academy youngsters also taking their first steps into the club's scholarship.

Russell Milton and his staff have welcomed in a fresh batch of first year scholars with last season's 'new boys' stepping up into their second year. The senior backroom staff introduced themselves on Tuesday (pictured) with the hope that many more scholars will make the step up to train and play with the first team squad.

The Youth Academy has had great success over the past few seasons with seven scholars becoming professional in the past two years.

2014-15 First Year Scholars: Niall Rowe (defence), James McCarthy (midfield), Lewis Thompson (midfield), Sam Mendes (midfield), Karnell Chambers (midfield), Alex Dinsmore (forward) & Jordan Lymn (forward)

2014-15 Second Scholars: Harry Reynolds (goalkeeper), Danny Reynolds (defence), Callum Craddock (defence), Callum McFarlane (defence), Rhys Daly (Midfield), Jamal Lawrence (midfielder), Liam Sheppard (midfielder), Jamie Goodwin (forward)
