Pellegrini plans under-23 changes

Manuel Pellegrini wants to bring the under 23s into much closer contact with the senior squad and plans to have them training at Rush Green as he keeps an eye on their development.

ClaretandHugh understands the new manager has started a review of the Academy and has been handed dossiers on every player under academy manager Terry Westley.

Among the rising Academy stars are winger  Nathan Holland (right), Marcus Browne and Josh Pask, Martin Samuelsen,  Vashon Neufville, Dan Kemp, Grady Diangana, and Jahmal Hector Ingram.

Pellegrini has visited Chadwell Heath and is reportedly keen to integrate the youngsters with their first team peers following their fine first season in Premier League 2 Division 1 when they finished fifth in their first season after promotion.

And he will ensure that every player will be monitored keenly in pre-season before they are allowed out of loan or a decision made on their futures.

  1. We should be aiming for a new state of the art training ground and bring everyone together. That’s part of what it takes to go to the so called “next level”.

    • I worked on the Chelsea training complex and we built the pools one pool had a moving floor which could move aspeeds of up to 14 mph this pool on its own cost over a million pounds so can’t see daves laying out to dosh for a state of art training complex maybe a few years down the line but agree all playing staff should be in one training centre

  2. Add Alfie Lewis and Nathan Trott
    Moyes never gave the youngsters ago.
    Rice was part of the match day squad already
    Even when we were winning comfortably and at the seasons none were given a run out. Instead we had over the hill freebies and players out of form
