Kenny - You may well be right but we will not know unless we ask and they tell us.

I take your point about playing senior football when you were only 16 but I would guess that your team mates were probably older.

It is a different scenario introducing youngsters to an established team.

Yes your right they where a lot older and all N/L players, but the point i am trying to make is youngsters are stronger mentally than you think. How many 16 and 17 yr olds have you in starting 11, i know Fowler is 17 and Pritchard 19 but what are the age of overs just interested thats all, been watching Brandon for yrs since they won the all England, always like to see them do well. but it is a forum for oppinions.

The spread of ages has changed as the season has progressed. The average age of the team that started against Esh Winning on Tuesday night would be significantly older than the one which started against Guisborough in August.

That change has been gradual as the club sought to enlist the right players to help the younger inexperienced players develop. Getting the right players has been difficult for various reasons but the new additions are the right type of players needed at this time.

I still feel that the category "best players" is unhelpful although I understand, in this format, opinions keep the site fluid.

I think back to the Brandon Team of 2002/3 and would find it difficult to say who were the Best Players. Each one had a part to play within the team. Individually they may not all have been the best player in the position played but collectively they were the best team in the league without any doubt.

But if you were to ask who was my favourite player I would be happy to comment knowing that it might not have anything to do with ability and would not belittle the contribution of the other team members.

Hope you see my point.
