Some of the left sided players you mentioned were more lauded for their ability going forward than their defensive quality.And none of them stood out for their ariel prowess. He might develop to that level,but then again he might not even sign for us.Your post didn't really explain any of that though, you just said his height or lack thereof was an issue. Which it isn't. He may or may not be a full back or winger depending on how good he is going forwards and improvements to his defensive side of his game but you don't write off a full back at 16 for being average height which is what was originally said. Lahm is 5"7, Roberto Carlos 5"6, Ashley Cole 5"9, Jordi Alba, Baines etc. The list goes on. We were most defensively solid with Godfrey because we played 4 centre halves and Godfrey is our best defender not because he gave us height

Stewart, Welch, Lowey, Hagan, Kristensen, Mills, Melcalfe, Jagne, Butterfield, Baker, Garcia,
Subs Leban, Campbell, Quintyne, McAllister, Cannon
16 a few months ago, 1st 90mins for the u18s tonight, made 3 sub appearances over the last few monthsOwen Barker? Has he played before? Assuming he is another U16?
Just a bit of an update on the younger teams.
Under 16's who are well thought of
Tierney- Tall defender, not played for the 18's yet but is close.
Edward Jones- Defender, can cover full back
Owen Barker- Midfielder, internatonal recognition
Isaac Heath- I have spoken about him a fair bit, but a very talented player, in the mould of Beardsley. Might even be an under 15 but believe he's under 16. Still very small
Jensen Metcalfe- Central midfield player, great tackle and composed on the ball.
Roman Quintyne- Full back who loves to get forward.
George Pickford- Midfielder
Jensen- Goalkeeper (Brian Jensens lad)
Ishe-Smith- Left back, quick
There's a little tricky right winger we got from Manchester United as well, but forgot his name. Anyway the two year groups below have a number of talented options.
