Quoted from jimgtfc

Playing youth team and first team are completely different. A player may excel at junior level to the extent that he's worth a deal, but stepping into mens football is a different games. So in terms of first team football they are an unknown quantity. I was also eluding to youth teamers who are not on a pro deal as yet, the likes of Bemrose who has been on the bench once or twice.

If they are an unknown quantity what is the point of giving them a contract. They are given contracts because it's thought they will be able to make it in "men's football"

In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.
