A lot of clubs don't have U19s constantly... therefore if an U19 side is set up, it often won't be the first team manager who initiates it or runs it, so at what point in that case would he be in charge? Immediately? Later on? When he feels like it? To me it comes back to there needing to be a good working relationship between both camps from the off and continuously after that, and then the question of who has the final say doesn't even come into it.
+ to FT - agree pretty much with all you said - re-the gap between NCEL and NPL for the U19s, I guess the issue comes with a club like Frickley with a smaller budget or squad than most, you get instances such as we've had recently where you either get gaps on the bench or the manager naming himself to make up numbers rather than using U19s and at the moment it seems we only have one recognised forward available which isn't great when you need some goals.

Frickley Athletic have a successful Under 19s side who won their league in 2011/12 and the new manager will be expected to work with the Under 19s manager to help develop these players as much as possible.
