I think PW sees our academy as a vital part of the club being sustainable/bringing in funds for us to improve the club on and off the pitch in the future. The seeds were planted when we first came into the league with the establishment of the academy, now we are beginning to see academy products in the first team and being linked to bigger clubs in the case of some. These players will either benefit us by playing for us or move on and we'll get a fee plus inserting a sell on clause.

Geographically, with big clubs in close proximity it will be hard for us to attract players of course, so we have to ensure that we can attract youngsters and their families to choose us. The fact that we do play youth products in the first team will be a huge selling point of course so hopefully going forward we will be producing players of an even higher standard. Plus we have dipped into Northern Ireland to sign the likes of Kennedy, McKee and Gorman et al.

If done right then having an academy is better for a club such as ours than not having one would be. Should Ainsworth or Wycombe get fed up of one another then it'll be a strange scenario for a new manager going in there, one which someone other than Ainsworth may not be able to make work.
