Clarke Challenges Our Youngsters

Steve Clarke has challenged our younger players to really step up this season and have an impact in the first team, after showing them he will involve them on merit.

Speaking to wba.co.uk after involving the youngsters in our pre season so far, Clarke said.

'The younger lads are always playing for a place in the team. That's their job, to try and impress me, and I've used them from the first day of pre season. I took them to Sweden and everyone who was there could see that they worked well with the group. It's up to them to try and give me a problem. If they can show they can handle this level, it bodes well for the future of the club.'

It's certainly not an empty speech from the new head coach as Saido Berahino, George Thorne, Sam Mantom, Kemar Roofe and James Hurst - as well as Scott Allan - have all figured so far as Clarke learns about the team, and he's not just going with the youngsters fans' will know of, as shown by him promoted Cameron Gayle for the Barnsley game.

Whilst we continue to scout abroad for talent that can adapt to the Premiership, it would be nice to bring through more home grown players as it always adds an edge for the fans and from the financial point of view, a good youth production system is a very good revenue stream for a club thesedays.
