They havent posted the 2019 RTC  fixtures yet, so i dont think lady blackadder and the baldricks are that capable of thinking ahead.

We’ve been asked to submit parent player questionnaires by the fa regarding the rtc which goes towards the licensing process

Thanks.  Unrelated but does anyone have a link to the reserve league for WSL - I'm assuming there is one - is it on FullTime or anything like that just interested in how some players are getting on.

Quite a few games given as walk overs, little wonder the odd  under age england player has left the program to play senior football at a lower tier,
No wonder the fa bloke who is tasked with it was very defensive about his program on another issue

Re: RTC 3 year Licence - WSL Academy structure
« Reply #29 on: January 24, 2019, 09:30:03 AM »
My view on the WSL academy structure. WSL teams can play down their professionally paid squad members into the academy game which consists of 16-21 year olds who are in education and technically amateur. The exception to this is Ipswich Academy who does not have a WSL team to call upon. So a recent match between Ipswich and Man City contained an international first team player who put 4 goals past a very young keeper. Similar happened with a game against Yeovil where several first team members played down. I dont feel it is fair for professional full time football players to play down, even if they are coming back from injury it will give the team an advantage.

Yes but I suppose clubs are looking at this division as a means to an end - developing players and if (if I'm getting it right) they are allowed to play some over age players down it'll be to get them match time coming back from injury etc.   Annoying if you are a regular in those development teams as that is your football but I suppose you'd also want to play against the best so the stronger the opposition the better.

ideally you’d have a system with a reserve league then an under 19s league

Question is can clubs field teams in both brackets I doubt it, thus making the reserve league and under 19s leagues weak with not many fixtures, which would starve players who fall into the mentioned brackets, of game time .

So which is the lesser of the two evils the current situation or the one mentioned above?

And when you have the FA setting teams like Doncaster belles back years through forced relegation instead of working with them to build infrastructure, is the game growing?

The parent player questionnaire is the same one as last year.... wouldn't have thought the answers have any impact on decisions....

Re first team players playing in dev squad matches... It's easy to forget that the main purpose of reserves teams is to service the first team, so of course reserve squad players have to make way for first team players who are playing down. It might feel unfair to lose matches to reserve teams with first team players on them, but it's a great experience for players to test themselves against older, more experienced players.

Is this to be the structure from next season for the RTC's? There will be a lot of player recruitment in the summer if that is the case.

I mean how many adult players can the clubs linked to these academies accommodate?  So when the vast majority don't make it into the first team where do they go, the other clubs who have been starved of decent youth players and money because everything was focused on the so called elite?   Well if the idea is that they are elite keep it as two year age groups, making it single year only waters it down.   I've seen some poor players in RTCs as it is, there isn't the strength in depth to double the numbers and if there is money for that  other clubs deserve it.
