I'm not convinced this is completely accurate.
The now former Parkway under 18's had every chance to progress through the ranks at Parkway.
9 of the under 18's got a debut in the reserve team through the season and most were asked to play the following week to be told that they were not allowed as someone else from their squad had to get a chance. That is not how football works - if someone comes in and does well they should have been allowed the opportunity to stay in the reserve team and then progress through to the first team.
3 of the under 18's actually did bypass the reserves and debut for the first team. 1 of which even scoring on his debut.
Its all water under the bridge now and what has happened has happened. However there was no 'block' from the club. As reserve team manager I often asked for the 18s to come along - I would have happily integrated 4/5 of them fully this season with the view of more to come after another season of under 18s football for the rest.
Let's not forget that the team were the younger age of under 18s and could / should have had another year of youth football challenging to win the league.
The main issue here was the impatience of certain individuals.
That said, I wish Ged, Jeff and all the lads all the best for next season...... except in 2 games
