Doesn't really matter whether we think it was a good deal or a bad deal. We offered him a pro contract, he declined, and decided to sign for someone else in a higher division. Not sure what else we could have done. At least we are producing young players capable of winning their division and attracting interest from higher up the food chain. Surely that is a good thing, and a sign of progression, even if we haven't got the clout to hang onto those young players. It's a whole new world now from when we were producing the likes of Ford, Drinkell and the Moore's. The disparity in finances between the divisions is huge compared to the 80's and we can't fend off the likes of Boro, never mind Prem teams who have billions to spend, while teams at our level have sodomist all. 100k is a significant amount for us. It's a weeks wages to a Prem fringe player. That's the way of it now.

That's the sad part of it. I agree with selling him because we have to maximise our assets and there is no way the lad is going to bring any more money if we kept him for 2-3 years and only gave him  the usual amount of first team time that we seem to give anyone under 25 these days.

But what this does show is that the days of nurturing kids through the academy and into the first team to build up a side of lads who have grown up together, those days are gone. The job of Neil Woods and co. is to produce players for the first team at other clubs, not ours, just to keep GTFC's head above water. Our team may have some younger players but they will be the likes of the Burrells who fail to make it at the big club, players like Vernam for instance, or the ones not quite good enough to attract those bigger clubs. I would fully expect Buckley and Curran to go if they show real signs of progress this year.

Jeez you really are negative. What about Harry Clifton? He's had plenty of game time and I would put money on us selling him for a decent sum at some point in the future if he continues to develop at the same rate.

It was a joke -   see?  

The point still stands - Burrell would need to spend at least another 2 years here before he might be considered a first teamer. Would we get more for him then? I doubt it. Clifton is different, for one thing he is not a striker and pacy forwards are the players in demand.

That will be the gtfc who ended the season with 6-7 of the team being 23 or under??

I suppose the point about age is we are no longer starting 16-18 yr olds they are nearly all 20 or above before they get anywhere near a regular start so if that good a prospect they will get picked off before we get any real game time from them. Fordy, Drinks, Moores etc were 17/18 yr olds when they played a fair amount. I think Fordy was still 16 on his debut.

I don’t understand the negativity aimed at the club. We identified a young lad with talent, took him on and developed him to the point that a big championship club have taken a chance on him . Chances are he would’ve earned his chance in the 1st team this season regardless of what certain posters think .
The fact that he hasn’t signed a new contract means the decision has been taken out of GTFCs hands so to get a decent offer is a no brainer. Hopefully this may mean a loan signing or 2 like Embleton may be on the cards .
