Following the practice of the previous few seasons a number of last year's youth squad have been moved on to one year contracts with the club. We would expect these to be of the kind a previous manager used to refer to as 'learning' contracts. This term it's the trio of Craig Alcock, Tom Clarke and Jake Smeeton who make the step up.
Alcock has generally played either at right-back or centre-back whilst Smeeton is a left-back and Clarke can play either up front or out wide. Follow the links for each player's stats in the title winning Under-18 side and in the Reserves for 2005-06. Additional statistics can be found here on Craig, here on Tom, and here on Jake.
