Academy Manager hails homegrown players
ALBION Radio is back again today with Academy Manager Mark Harrison in the spotlight.
Mark spoke to us about the Academy’s development programme, highlighting a pretty remarkable statistic that underlines the progress made at youth level.
“In the last three years, we are ranked fifth in terms of PL appearances from home grown players. That’s out of 24 clubs, so that’s significant recognition of the productivity of the Academy in terms of producing players”.
Mark also spoke to us about the generation of “whispering talent”, youngsters currently under the radar but who he expects to have plenty to shout about this season.
