Cut the club some slack here. It will probably cost the club upwards of 1.5k to stage the game. The admission cost will barely cover this. 

Will it cost more than the Litherland game to stage? Personally I see it as the club see the name Sunderland and bang am extra 2 quid on

The Sunderland travel expenses will probably be greater than the Litherland travel expenses ? That's just the way these things are unfortunately

Unfortunately the lads slipped to a 2-3 home defeat to York City this afternoon and drop down to 5th in the table.

 I still fail to understand how the U-19s fail to progress to senior level as they are 16,17,18 years old so should be able to play at senior level?

 Mr Fullerton does not think they are good enough, not even for the bench. His quote!!

We do not have the funds or set up to attract the best local talent to our club, all the promising youngsters in junior football will be taken on by the likes of Leeds, Huddersfield and in many cases further afield into their academy systems. We then with all respect will be picking from a group who have not been deemed good enough elsewhere or maybe never taken elsewhere in the first place.

Ross Barrows, Shiraz Kahn, Marko Basic ect were the cream of the crop when they were here yet they now ply their trade 3 leagues below where we are. Of course this doesn't mean they cant progress back up the pyramid in the coming years but how can we incorporate a player who's level is Evo Stick north just because he played in our youth teams?

We all want to see home grown talent come through the ranks but sadly if there is a young player in Calderdale showing great potential they wont be signing for us, and thats the tyoe of player that might be ready for 1st team action at this level at 18.

Can only have one keeper on the bench; and if Carl has signed for Brighton then good luck to him but obviously he will be working his way up through the ranks.

Any news on the fee or is it the usual undisclosed?

Definitley at Brighton.....8th Dec 2018

Sunderland U18s 3-3 Brighton & Hove Albion U18s  A 3-3 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Academy of Light on Saturday saw Sunderland exit the U18 Premier League Cup.The Black Cats took a 16th minute lead through Ryan Gooch’s long-distance strike, before Cole Kiernan’s double made it three before the break.The tide turned in the second period as the Seagulls netted three to draw level via Jack Spong and Lorent Tolaj’s brace, ensuring the Black Cats finished third in Group C. The hosts had to weather the storm in a blustery opening 10 minutes as Brighton started on the front foot - Tolaj forcing Adam Cameron into a one-on-one save after five minutes. The Lads slowly gained the upper hand however and took the lead in some style as Gooch shifted the ball into a yard of space before firing low into the bottom-left corner from 25 yards.The Black Cats controlled proceedings after going ahead and limited Brighton’s attacking threat, remaining potent at the other end as Kiernan doubled the advantage on the half-hour mark.The striker had Ryan Leonard to thank for putting the ball on a plate for him from the right-wing, before he slotted home from close range.Not content with a two-goal lead, Kiernan added a sumptuous third three minutes later as he curled into the far corner from 25 yards following slick build-up play from Logan Pye and Sean Kennedy The Seagulls were undeterred however and were left cursing Cameron, who made a fine save from Stefan Vukoje moments before Tolaj went clean through and fired wide. Sunderland found themselves under immediate pressure in the second 45, and seven minutes into the half Brighton found a way back into the game as Spong rolled into the bottom-left corner from the edge of the area.The visitors capitalised on their spell of ascendancy again on the hour mark to halve the deficit when Tolaj rose to head Leonard’s cross home from close range.Brighton completed their turnaround in controversial circumstances shortly after their second, when Tolaj again converted Leonard’s right-sided cross- despite claims the ball had gone out of play moments earlier. Cameron then denied Tolaj a hat-trick as both sides searched for a winner, while at the other end substitute Lilyan Compper curled over from 20 yards. Despite their efforts, neither side were able to find a fourth goal and both exited the competition with the Black Cats finishing third behind Derby County and Aston Villa.

Sunderland U18: Cameron; Smith (Compper, 80’), Pye, Edmundsson, Derbali, Ord, Gooch (Miller, 28’), Scothern, Kiernan (Bell, 52’), Leonard, Kennedy.

Subs: Basey, Foster.

Brighton U18: Rushworth; Packham (Roberts, 72’), Tutt, Weaire, Lopata, Clark-Eden, Vukoje, Shihab (Cashman, 72’), Tolaj, Spong, Leonard.

Subs: Rees, Tanimowo.

Quote from a Twitter account that reports on Brighton youth teams regarding that match - " Albion U18s' goals today were scored through @Sponggg10 and a brace from Lorent Tolaj. There was an appearance in goal for Halifax Town goalkeeper Carl Rushworth #BHAFC "

More "not quite ready"  as opposed to "not good enough" was the impression I got when speaking to JF at the Garforth Youth FA Cup tie. It's difficult when we have no U23 or reserve team to introduce the lads into a higher level of football both technically and physically.

I may be wrong but I thought it was Billy Heath who didnt view the u19‘s as being viable or good enough when he was here?

Transitional season with a few key players moving on, not least the goalkeeper. Strange non of our kids good enough to warm the spaces on the first team bench but Liverpool field a 16yr old, I know a gulf in standards between Premiership & National but it's all relative.

One reason why I am glad Liverpool lost. Showing no respect to the FA Cup as many other Premiership Teams have done in the past. All clubs should only be allowed to play the best possible team in that competition, not just a few kids to make up the 11. Its a shame that a once world wide spectacle has been allowed to dissipate. Shame on the FA.

Understand about Liverpool, but it’s a bit of a myth the top 6 not taking it seriously. 9 out of the last 10 finals have been won by one of those clubs and since 1984 only one final hasn’t one one of them playing in it. 

The problem is further down, the teams like Leicester, West Brom etc who field weaker teams and don’t have the strength in depth. On the flispide some younger players are given a chance in the first team, but at what expense?
