    Looks like we might be seeing the first fruits from bringing in Chris Perkins to a new role of head of youth recruitment....

    I notice that Southend's highly rated left back, Charlie Sayers played for under 19s as a triallist on Saturday. He has already played a handful of first team games for Southend.

    This is brilliant for our youngsters. Hopefully the club are seeing what they can do to keep him around as having somebody like that at the club would be a big carrot for a lot of young talent.

    Indeed. Forget Mason and Powell, as much as I appreciate them - Toure is the real deal. If a youngster isn't inspired after a session with him, I don't know what will get them motivated.

    I was thinking that earlier, what a great idea it is to have ex-pros of that calibre working with the academy on an ad-hoc basis. Maybe it will be another string to our bow, being a desirable environment to attract ex-players at the higher end of their coaching badge programme, from time to time. There is so much experience from which our young players could learn, and levels to which they can aspire.

    Great players dont always make good coaches, it's a special skill to coach young players, totally different from working with experienced players.

    Indeed. But I'm not suggesting any replacement of our coaching staff, and assuming we would exercise some 'quality' control as to who is involved, it is an added bonus for our young players to be exposed to that level of player in their day-to-day training.

    Must have made quite an impression, since he is captaining the side today

    Which are the stars of that team? Dorrington, the CB I've heard of, and Donley the CF who I think I read is injured

    Which others?

    The under 18s got through to the next round in the youth Cup, beat Ipswich 5-1.

    Alfie Devine got another 2 goals.

    That's not true mate.
    The match report is poorly written and implies Devine got 2 in the opening few lines, but he got 1 and Davies got 2.

    It was a tight match, 2-1 for ages, Gunter saved an Ipswich penalty, then we got to 3-1 after 82 minutes and scored twice in injury time.
