Just a quick question, who was it that made us close our youth teams when we got relegated to the Nation League. Was it the EFL? I can't remember.

I think we chose to close ourselves and changed the approach as kids where going to other clubs for next to nothing, so focus on released young players who don’t get pro contracts

Pretty sure relegation to the NL meant we no longer received some/all the central (EFL?) funding for youth development too.

We did receive funding for the first two years I believe. It was the youth level, u16, teams that stopped rather than the older ones - who can't get poached as I understand it. Ironically a number of the players went to Bury.
