Danny Newton gets a move to Stevenage after attending the V9 academy. Would imagine Stevenage were already well aware of him.

Wouldn't surprise me since they're starting to look into non-league for their strikers (Matty Godden from Ebbsfleet last summer)

The players on the V9 academy should be on the radar of football league clubs regardless of anything Vardy has put his name to. I thought it may have been something Evostik or lower players could use as a vehicle for progression

Still can't quite square the circle that the V9 Academy is trying to find the next Jamie Vardy whilst removing the whole flipping process that made Jamie Vardy the player he is. 

The reason why Vards is starting up top for England ahead of the likes of Sturridge, Rashford, Welbeck, Carroll and co. is that he never got anything too young. He had to gain some humility and embrace his love for the game and, most importantly, develop a phenomenal work ethic and willingness to win before he began to rise up. 

There's no way he'll unearth any player fit to lace his boots by encouraging players to just sign their first big professional contract. Great players are not like instant mash! They require development and what better way than by just toughing it out in our brilliantly competitive British leagues?

Late to this, but absolutely spot on.

How?

Vardy was at Stocksbridge, Halifax and Fleetwood. The Shay has good facilities, and I dare say Fleetwood has too. Vardy was hardly slumming it.

Newton has been at Barwell, Hinckley, Nuneaton (got binned when Louis Moult came in) Leamington and Tamuff. Fair to say he's grafted and 'toughed it out', no?

Set up Deano's header against Droylsden to make it 2-0 in the FA cup, prompting one Mr. Farrell to vault the advertising hoardings. 

The Glenn Hoddle Academy was worth every penny.

Didn't realize Dennis was a product of the Hoddle Academy

Was at a junior tournament over at Fleetwood last weekend Sir Alex Fergerson opened there training ground last year and said it's as good as any facility in the Premier league it's an amazing complex it's the way forward for developing players .

Starts today for 5 days. Scouts from all over the country and some from Europe watching 42 players. How does this affect clubs? Do the club get a fee if a player gets a deal? 

Alex Penny (Nuneaton) was at the V9 academy and spotted by Peterborough.

20 year old centre back.

Just signed a 3 year deal at Peterborough and Nuneaton have received a club record fee. More than Peterborough previously paid for Aaron Williams or Callum Chettle, or Lincoln paid for Elliott Whitehouse. Not bad for someone who wasn't (and I'm not sure would be) a first team regular.

edit- and as the club see things as a continuation, apparently more than Derby paid for Malcolm Christie.

No doubt Peterborough will go on to claim another £MM sell-on when this one climbs the ladder in years to come. They have made a very good business out of being an escalator for developing players.

We've not done too badly either.
