Women's Football / Playing at different levels
« Last post by croc on February 02, 2019, 09:15:04 PM »
Am I right in thinking a player can sign for 2 teams so long as one is significantly higher up the pyramid than another.  Does anyone know if that is right and if so where I can find the specifics ?

Thanks

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.

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?

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.

Girl's Centres of Excellence / Re: RTC 3 year Licence - WSL Academy structure
« Last post by Kelly 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.

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
