Debutants 11:45 - Feb 4 with 350 viewsTrumptonBlue

Boring stat of the week.

Assuming there are no more debutants this season - I can't imagine any previously unused youngsters will burst onto the scene and be trusted enough to play a part in the run-in - this will be the season with the fewest debutants (9) since 2007/08.

Obviously, our non-involvement in the Pizza Cup reduces the debut opportunities for young players who are never going to get a game in the more serious competitions, but even so 9 is a big reduction on the average of 17 per season since 2008 (with a high of 25(!) in 2012/13).

That suggests a good level of continuity, which I think is a good thing. A huge turnover of players never seems to have a positive effect. There have been no debutants from the academy this season, which is a bit of a shame but not particularly unusual. At least Buabo has had a bit of involvement.
