we used to play in the old Cheshire league donks ago , there would be nothing wrong with a mix of youth & senior players coming back from injury suspension or bench warming . just makes sense .

Whatever league we end up in next season, we need a reserve team in a league. This will be a statement of intent.

It has to be cost effective in terms of travel, kit, players, meals, coaches. I'm sure there's a ballpark figure of running a reserve team.

I don't think our squad is big enough to sustain it. I know we have had a fair few players this season but there have been too many loanees. I doubt parent clubs would be happy for us to be using their players in the reserves!

Do we need a reserve team playing in a competitive league ?
Yes it would benefit us.
Can we afford to run one ?
Probably not.

When Mills was manager I seem to recall he crossed it off the list preferring to put all his eggs in one basket and focus on the first team - similar to youth and developing players who could eventually break into the first team like when Flynn was manager.
You have to feel sorry for the young kids coming through - ultimately they never really get a chance. Successive managers will always play cautious and opt for the old experienced seasoned pro - rarely does a youngster break into the first team and stay there. I really rate Doug Tharme from what I have seen of him and he is probably our best young prospect - with the unfortunate injury to Lawlor described as a dislocated shoulder by BH in his post match interview - Tharme might now get his chance to at least get a place on the subs bench.

However, the real problem seems to be any fringe players coming back from injury or promising youngsters never get to play competitively as in the old Central League. Playing regular matches in a structured league would surely benefit us - but someone somewhere will hopefully have done the maths and come to the conclusion that, financially we can't do it.

Exactly. I doubt we've impressed the many of the clubs we've loaned players from, not given them a sniff of a chance, left to rot then sent them back.

I wonder if the appalling and wreck less use of loans will be addressed at the club?

I believe we would benefit from having a reserve team playing in a competitive league - as has been said, this would comprise of young players/squad players/ trialists?/those coming back from injuries etc.
If a player shows outstanding form in a reserve match then they should be considered for a first team start - keeps everyone on their toes.

I appreciate it would cost money but if run properly and given encouragement and respect it should benefit us ,and save money, in the long run.

It would be a huge benefit for sure, having players playing competitive football if they are younger players coming through, players not currently making the first team or players coming back from injury. However, it is probably a non-starter due to the cost as previous posts have mentioned (travel, accommodation etc).
