Default Re: Reserve Team....Do we need one?

We generally agree that having a reserve team would be beneficial, but that costs would be prohibitive. Everything we do in life boils down to money, yet we have good income streams (home attendances), so why can’t we make it work? I plan to attend the big AGM on Thursday night - let’s truly see what’s in the coffers.
We always had a reserve team in the 1960’s, when I started watching the club. Yet we had a modest ground and a butcher, Baker and candlestick maker on the board. Not vast amounts of cash floating around then either!

Salford City U21s play in the North West U21 League along with FCUM and others, next season Tranmere and Macclesfield also have teams in it. It allows 3 overage players per game. Link to the players who are registered to Salfords squad below.

Salford City

Costs to run a team aren't massive, standard is decent in the Premier League.

Default Re: Reserve Team....Do we need one?

Wrexham Reserves used to play in the Cheshire League in the 50s and 60s along with other reserve teams like Chester, Crewe, Stockport County, Tranmere Rovers etc. playing Altrincham, Macclesfield, Northwich Victoria, Witton Albion, Hyde United during that era. Reserve teams then included some good part time professionals or even amateurs.
Wrexham A and in some seasons a Wrexham B team played in the Welsh National League, Wrexham area, during this period while Chester A played in the West Cheshire League.
Nowadays both English and Welsh FAs have a pyramid system which quite rightly, rules out reserve teams.
Personally, I favour a reserve team playing arranged friendly matches against other teams in both England or Wales, closed doors or not, which would give the opportunity for players coming back from absence, fringe players or trialists.

Remember going to Rhyl for a Cheshire League game. Albert Dunlop our ex goalie was in their team. The away Wrexham fans spent the match chanting "Albert Dunlop , you're a junkie , you're a junkie'" not sure why but I probably joined in anyway.

Accommodation ??? It would be against local teams not those from bloody London Mate

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!
The squad we end up with always is big enough. We start off with small squads, realise it’s a total folly, and then end up with players kicking around not playing. There’s a clear need to build a bigger squad from the off, keep these players ticking over while they’re out of the first team, actually develop the few young players we have and avoid the revolving door of loans. I thought scrapping reserves would be a backward step and it demonstrably is one.

To answer the thread question; I believe there is a need for the reasons you outline. However, the costs will be the telling point.

What would it cost compared to us getting in loan players who sit on the bench unfit and unmatch ready doing nothing?
