    Default Where are they now?

    On a similar subject to the "Nathan Ashe" post, I recall a lot of coverage at the time following a group of "promising youngsters " being signed by Saints from the Scholarship on part time contracts to join the Academy squad.
    Link to liverpool echo report below from 2009.

    At this time I keenly followed the Academy and Reserves to look at how the youngsters were progressing. Other than Josh Jones I lost track of what happened with these youngsters. Probably lost to our game with the (in my view) stupid decision to scrap Academy and Reserves competitions and move to Dual Reg.
    Anyone know what came of this group of what were highly rated lads?
    Rogues - no doubt one for you!!

    I like a honesty as much as anyone elese, but to be fair, they can't run with the headline of "More fodder for the lower leagues or to walk away from the game!" Hardly a motivational & positive image message.

    I remember Baines and Josh Jones being highly thought of but not the others.
