Cian Harries (Coventry - defender) & George Thomas (Coventry - midfielder)

Elliott Hewitt (Ipswich/Gillingham - defender) Went straight into the starting XI as Gillingham faced Sheffield Utd at Bramall Lane. The full back had an eventful game - picking a yellow card and clearing the ball off the line in his sides 2-1 win.
Sam Jones (Leicester City - defender) Played another 90 minutes as he settles into his new surroundings with the Foxes U18's team. Leicester beat Spurs 3-1.
Josh Rees (Nottingham Forest - midfielder) Coolly slotted home from the edge of the box to put his side 1-0 up against WBA U21's. Unfortunately for Rees, the Baggies equalised and went on to knock Forest out of the Premier League U21 Cup.
Callum Saunders (Crewe - striker) Continued his fine start to the season with an assist and a goal to help the U18's through the the next round fo the FA Youth Cup.
Louis Thompson (Swindon - midfielder) Started as the Robins travelled to Colchester on Saturday - this was his second start in a row. Thompson was another Wales youth international forced to clear the ball off his own line and was singled out for praise from manager Mark Cooper.
"You know what Louis is going to give us. He’ll run through heaven and high earth to get a result same as his brother."
