Best Under 18 in cornwall?

Recommended Posts

Father Ted,

Ask Richard Rundle whether I overlooked him or whether I explained to him our position after the trial game at Newquay.

People make certain accusations without being in possession of all the facts.

I've seen Richard play since the trials and I'm keeping in touch with his and other players' progress all the time through a network of contacts thanks.

Many of the names mentioned in this thread are already playing in the County side so I guess we're on the right lines, and given the fact I can only have a squad of 16 at games I can't include everybody else mentioned.

We all see different things in different players and it's important to select a squad that has flexibility in it so that players can switch positions at a moment's notice when injuries occur. A prime example was when Kempy got hurt against Dorset after 15 minutes. We were able to switch players fairly seemlessly and not lose our shape.

So selecting a squad also involves picking players who are able to cover a number of positions. Not all players are able to do this comfortably. The squad has performed well so far and we have a big game to look forward to next month against Wiltshire.

Neil slatesford of Falmouth is a top act, also liam thornton has pace to burn. there are two young lads at callington that are performing well at the minute.

i also agree zack peel is a top quality striker. not sure where he is at the moment but he has the potential to be playing south western league if not higher. i would love to have him in my team, but rumour has it his friday nights take priority over his saturday duties

Couldn't agree more - Darran Edwards came on yesterday and I heard he made all the difference I hear, at 16 that's a good player to look out for.

Scott Bennett is the best under 18 player in the county by a country mile. Scott is currently playing for Exeter City Reserves and my mate who is scott bennett and the bennett familys friend went up to watch Exeter City Res v Plymouth Argyle Res and Plymouth had a really strong side out with many of the first teamers ( Steve Maclean, Emile Mpenza, Craig Noone... to name a few) and only lost 2-1 and Scott apparently marked Emile Mpenza out of the game. In the summer he signed a pro contract with exeter city. Keep up the good work scott

i played against scott bennett a couple of weeks ago for torquay utd u18s, where we beat citys u18s 1-0. bennett was poor and the back and got run ragged by a school boy. i dont know how good he is usually but it didnt seem anything much.

I have heard that thee FA are looking to change the minimum age of footballers playing adult football again, from 16 but to this time 18. If they go ahead with this, then surely the selcetion process will become far easier for Tommy and his team as they will all be playing in the saem under 18 league and it won't matter whether they are playing Senior or Junior football.

Best Under 18's In Cornwall?? Saul Halpin and Will Cherrill. Both Play For Torquay Under 18's. Train With Them Everyday. Great Players. Both From Cornwall.

3 players arron bicknell, scott bennett and liam eddy. if people are putting billy hopcroft and other strikers ahead of liam then they are silly. hes playing at truro first team and doing very well for such a young talent. i think that speak for itself.

The county squad this year has shown what talent it does have. its a team game and your going to have some players better than others but thats how the weaker players improve. Their maybe players that are not in the county squad that should be. but the county have not got to the level they are at for no reason!!!!!!!!

we should be praizing the job tommy mathews has done this year not debating on other players being in his squad!!!!!

I agree - from what I have seen Tom knows a good player when he sees one, look at his youth team of years ago, Darren Edwards and Dave Blizzard they are both doing really well at Penryn Firsts. I am told Darren has a maturity beyond his 16 years on the football pitch.

I have watched a lot of football this season and would say oliver Brokenshire and Niel Slateford of Falmouth are two of the best I have seen. Darren Edwards from Penryn is also one to keep an eye on. Sticker have two excellent young players in Kieren Conibear and jordan Dingle, both have the ability to play at a higher level. Chris luxton of Newquay is a good prospect.
