The 18-year-old, who signed his first professional contract with the Blues last March, is very highly regarded at the Academy at Finch Farm and has joined the League Two side to gain valuable experience.

Not sure I entirely agree with you, Dave (#1, as I find the U21 league very committed and physical but getting hit by a Neanderthal centre half keen to preserve his win bonus would be something else. Winning and losing in a professional league certainly shows the mettle of players; I think Conor Grant's game has come on a lot since his loan last season.

I know Barkley was disappointed when he went on loan to Sheffield Wednesday, he had his head down at Finch Farm when he heard he was going, one of the scouts told him at least you will be playing real football.

Walsh and Ledson would be two of my picks to have a decent pro career as their attitude is second to none. Good luck to the lad.
