Well it shows what a good job the new format is doing for the development of young players.

The fact that he's Belgian is just a near miss.

Mr Harvey has elevated the FL Trophy to such a height that last night's CL game was a bit of an inconvenience for young (ish) Michy.

Taken from the BBC Football

Leicester City fielded an Under-21 side with six over-age players, three internationals and transfer fees worth around £45m in their 2-1 Checkatrade Trophy second-round win at Scunthorpe.

Nigeria's Kelechi Iheanacho started up front alongside Leonardo Ulloa as City edged past the League One side.

Two youngsters - George Thomas and Sam Hughes - put City into an early lead.

Kevin van Veen pulled one back for the Iron just before the break, although just 824 fans were there to see it.

As well as 31-year-old Ulloa and 21-year-old Iheanacho, goalkeeper Ben Hamer (30), Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey (22), Austria's Aleksandar Dragovic (26) and former France Under-21 player Yohan Benalouane (30) also featured as Leicester made the last 16.

But the other two Premier League academy sides bowed out as the tournament continued to suffer poor crowds.

West Ham's youngsters went down 4-0 at Luton Town in front of just 1,670 fans, while Swansea City's academy side were beaten 3-2 by League One's Charlton Athletic at a sparsely populated Liberty Stadium - the Swans did not release an attendance figure.

Lincoln City had the biggest attendance of the night with 3,026 as they beat Accrington 3-2, while League Two sides Yeovil Town and Forest Green Rovers both had wins over League One opposition.

The combined attendance of the nine games where clubs did reveal a figure was 11,323 - an average of just 1,258 per game.

From the EFL website.

"Any EFL or Premier League player who is serving a ban or is set to serve a suspension for a yellow or red card offence will be eligible to play in this week’s opening group games in the Checkatrade Trophy.

New disciplinary rules for the revamped cup competition mean that cautions and sending-offs are exclusive to the tournament and in normal circumstances won’t affect other EFL or Premier League fixtures."

Was taken from an post in August 2016 mind..


The club that simply wouldn't DIE!

We will be back. One day. Someday, somehow!

That's shockingly high. The average is propped up by the Gimps. They clearly don't know how to bully people down there.

Probably more at Lincoln than they got the year before last for a lot of league games.

These new plastic fans at Lincoln don't know what it's all about with it being their 1st season of following the gimps. Bless em they'll see the error of their ways as soon as Lincoln revert back to being excrement, they'll be looking over their humps as Harvey uses them as to why Premier B teams are a good idea for the league after the success at checkatrade cup competition.

Fenty stating only 8 clubs need to vote it down, well it wasn't voted down when they flashed the cash, old Marley went weak at the knees, "it's a great idea John the fans will love it", he future allegedly says.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Jesus’ disciple Peter, picked up a fish to get the tribute money from it, Jesus left his thumb print on the fish, bless'ed is the Haddock.

He was talking about only 8 needed to vote down any proposal to change the League to allow B teams. Though I would prefer to see that confirmed in the League constitution first, and would like to see us being one of the 8.
