First of all thank you to all for the commitment you have shown on completion of the first phase of preparation for Project 2020.
I am very pleased in having had over 30 players in a continuing assessment program at the National Training sessions, with a large number of these players having also been assessed during the recent October trip and/or at Christmas Camp.
The players born in 2004 not selected for the “Reduced Squad” should carry on their training to either continue their development and/or be part of the preparation process for the Under 19 squad over the next 2 years, by attending Level 5 on the Saturday session at National Training up to September 2020, then moving to the Under 19 session on Sunday from October 2020.
The players born in 2005 not selected for the “Reduced Squad” must carry on attending National Training if they wish to be considered for Project 2021.
All the players not selected for the “Reduced Squad” will become reserve players as long they continue training. This is in case of injury, discipline issues, etc because a player(s) will be replaced.
Players selected in the “Reduced Squad” have to make all the remaining training dates on the Preparation Plan up to the date I announce the Final Squad. The 10 players announced in the Final Squad will have to make every training activity, as shown on the Preparation Plan. The reason I am saying this is that if a player cannot commit to the full Preparation Plan then I need to be aware now so that I can replace the player.
Jason Oldroyd, the Under 17 Manager will be contacting you for the duration of the Project to initially arrange the Easter trip in the next few days and also any other activities till the European Competition.
The players that are playing abroad will have to attend the Easter Trip and the three days preparation in May to be considered for Final Squad selection.
