Before a change in shifts I used to get to quite a few youth/reserve games.

Macklin is easily the second best player I saw for us at that level in that time period. Only one who was better was Lukas Jutkiewicz and he definitely benefitted from being a tank from about 14.

Probably Nathan Thompson after that. Scott Doe always looked handy but never got a chance with us.

Lapham & Stroud never stand outs at youth level but both had MotM performances in the first team. Although they went as quickly as they arrived.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm positive Chelsea were sniffing around Macklin around the time he was scoring for fun for the reserves/youth?? Sure he scored 20+ goals from right wing one season??

I couldn’t tell you one way or the other but heard rumours they looked at him and Thompson.
Wouldn’t really recognise any scouts by face
Saw Roberto Martinez at a reserve game when he was manager of Swansea and certain Charlie Austin was playing his bit of football in a Town shirt. As he was only a few rows behind I did hear talking to which ever member of his coaching staff he was with that ‘that kid has it’ or words to that effect.


Few years later. Fuck load of scouts to watch Henshall.
Where the fuck is he now?

Actually Martínez might have been at Wigan by then...

At Darlo in the National League North, at the grand old age of 24 looks to have played 9 games at a reasonable level out of a grand total of 42 overall, with 2 goals.

Is he the one who was a bit of an arse about Thompson (L)?
