Never mind. Was an experience for the youngsters.
Its good in as its a change from playing normal youth matches,where the focus is on learning how they want you to play and results are really unimportant,its more focused on development than getting a win.This is a competative competition against professional sides who fight to win,which is another side of the learning the kids need.I really dont want to see youth sides soley focused on win at all costs every match.Then they will go their own way on the pitch,not follow a managers instructions,and not develop from input so much.But yes have some matches defined as real competition,with crowds,it should help young players in england.But also keep the closed doors league against their young peers where its not win at all costs.

Completely agree. I think sides like Luton will give it everything as losing to an under 23 side will be a bit embarrassing for them and these kids have to get used to smaller sides digging deep.
