Adkins - Youth To Play Their Part

Adkins - Youth To Play Their Part

Nigel Adkins has said that youth will play it's part next season.

Speaking to BBC Radio Solent the gaffer said that his aim was to get 50% of our homegrown players through to the first team, so all levels within the club were working towards the same aim.

'We endeavour to get 50% of our homegrown players through to the first team. It's about a spirit that we've got, a Southampton way. We've got a good environment to improve , to learn, to work hard and develop. The object is to get them through, we've got to make sure there's a pathway for them. That's the vision we've got.'

With the ever growing financial elements in the Premier League, continuing to produce our own - and increasing our success rate - will go a long way to improving our first team, and also generating money to reinvest.

A good youth policy will go a long way to improving us further.
