‘The way the Academy have been working during these difficult times has been exceptional’ – Andy Myers on the season so far

‘Our targets aren’t all about winning leagues, which is nice, but with the young group we have I think they’ve really done well in competing this term. We’ve played some really good stuff in the EFL Trophy games but we were a little naive when it came to conceding. Overall, it’s been pleasing to watch and the rest will come as they get older and wiser, with more experience and exposure to men’s football.’

After 11 PL2 games, we end the year with seven wins, one draw and three defeats. Myers feels the losses have given his players the chance to display their character and ability to bounce back, something which wasn’t needed as much in last year’s unbeaten title-winning season.

‘It’s been a little bit up and down in the league at times,’ he admits. ‘I don’t think our performances have always given us the results that we deserved. There were only two games this season that left me really disappointed, but as a whole the team and group have been excepetional. However, it’s only halfway and just one part of their development process as individuals and as a team.
