Troy Brown (Fulham - defender) Who has been on trial at
Charlton of late, appeared for the second time at the heart of the Ipswich
second string side this week. The Wales U19 international played at centre back
in an impressive 5-0 victory over Leyton Orient. No word yet though if he has
done enough to impress the canine loving Roy Keane.
Elliott Chamberlain (Leicester - midfielder) Scored one as
the Foxes U18 team kept up pressure on leaders Spurs in the Premiership Academy
League. The Wales U17 international and his team mates are now the highest
scoring side in the league set up with 50 goals in the last 10 games.
Simon Church (Reading/Leyton Orient - striker)
Broke the dead lock after half time, but his goal was not enough as Orient lost
2-1 to Millwall last Saturday. Despite various reports in the media, it is not
known yet whether the Wales U21 international will stay at the Madjeski or seek
regular football at another club.
Sam Hart (Preston - defender/midfielder) Slotted in at
left back as Preston took on a Man City XI this week. Hart played 90 minutes as
the Lillywhites the Totesport.com League with a 2-0 win.
Aynsley McDonald (Rushden and Diamonds -
defender/midfielder) Picked up most improved young player of the year
in the end of season awards. McDonald has been on the fringes of the first team
this season and is another youngster who will look for a strong pre season to
push his claims for a start.
Liam Newman (Burnley - striker) Celebrated winning the
Totesport.Com Central League on Monday night with two goals for the reserves on
Wednesday evening. The Wales U17 international scored twice as the Clarets beat
James Owen (Chester - midfielder) Was once again in the
starting XI as Chester fought for their league lives against Aldershot. With
only a win guaranteed to give them any realistic hope of staying in League Two,
City drew 2-2 and now need a major miracle. It seems that life in the Blue
Square Premiership next season could see youngsters like Owen and Ben
Jones (Chester - midfielder) starting on a regular basis.
Elliott Parish (Aston Villa - goalkeeper) Kept a clean
sheet in the mini Midlands derby as the Villains reserves beat the Baggies 2-0.
Parish was called into action on a couple occasions and dealt comfortably with
everything that was thrown at him.
Ashton Taylor (Tranmere - midfielder) Was an unused sub as
Tranmere look to give youth a chance as the season comes to a close. The game
against Yeovil finished 1-1 and Taylor will now be looking to get some match
action after a successful loan stint with Colwyn Bay.
Jake Taylor (Reading - midfielder/forward) Was in the
starting IX on Tuesday afternoon as the reserves won the Totesport.com
Combinations League with a 4-1 win against Millwall. Taylor could have grabbed
a goal himself but for an impressive save from the Lions keeper. He also
started again on Thursday afternoon as the reserves cruised to a 4-0 win against
Gillingham. Taylor having a hand in the first goal as the Royals ran riot
against the Gills.
Sam Wedgbury (Sheffield Utd/Ferencvaros - midfielder)
Played another 90 minutes Ferencvaros as he comes to the end of his loan spell
in the Hungarian second tier. His side need another two wins to claim the title
and promotion to the top flight.
Jack Winter (Swindon - defender) Will not be offered a
contract at the County Ground after being released at the end of his two year
scholarship at the club. This time of year brings a lot of sadness and joy for
many youngsters as they learn whether they will be staying on at their
respective clubs or looking for other employment and clubs.
