POST MATCH REVIEW WITH LS
We caught up with Liam Sutcliffe post match following the top class event and match with Sheffield United.
He was full of praise " Sheffield United and ourselves put on a great performance showing the level of quality at youth level in this country"
"Through our recruitment, process, traditional scouting and diligence in creating a positive playing and learning environment we have competed with a premier league club and CAT 1 academy at full tilt"
" Our players did very well but in the end we ran out of steam. Our goal and their second were both outstanding and the real highlight of a very competitive game"
"We were so pleased to field 11 U17 players in an U18 game and in total 13 of the squad were born in Q3 and Q4 of the year. The boys did very well when you take this into consideration. Game related learning and learning from your peers in match situations and from older players is something we can take away from today's game"
"Certainly a few have very bright futures"
"A big thank you to all involved and thank you to Sheffield United and their staff for making the journey to SGP to play us"
EVANDER GRUBB SIGNS FOR THE TERRIERS
ON THE RISE!
Evander Grubb signs a two year scholarship with Huddersfield Town Football Club
Liam Sutcliffe said “Evander is a technically gifted player who has so much to offer the game”
“After a number of set backs including 5 trials in February and March which didn’t progress due to his size, we knew then we needed the right club for Evander”
“Evander has been on our radar since February 2020. We could clearly see his ability to play and that he had the brain to play at a much higher level. We’ve been working with him for some time now, creating exposure and helping him in different ways. Evander has been in for assessment days with us and he has featured recently vs Sheffield United”
“It was so important to match Evander to the right club and environment and we’ve done that. The philosophy of Huddersfield Town Football Club
& the work their academy is doing to take players from youth to professional status is excellent, especially for players who may have missed the boat for whatever reason or could be described as late developers”
“We are very proud of Evander and really pleased for his father and family”
CHARLIE BULLOCK SIGNS FOR NEWPORT COUNTY
A NEW ADVERTURE FOR CHARLIE

We are extremely pleased for Charlie and his family.
Liam Sutcliffe said "Charlie is a very accomplished midfielder with a lot of potential"
"Location wise this is a really good fit for Charlie, his family and Newport County"
"We are pleased Charlie has had the opportunity with us and found a new base to continue his journey and development"
