Wilson: Duo the Best Youngsters I've Played Alongside
Thursday, 23rd Jan 2020 12:58
Centre-half James Wilson says he’s not played with young players as good as Flynn Downes and Luke Woolfenden previously in his career.
The 21-year-old duo have been among Town’s top performers this season with the pair having caught the eye of other clubs.
Fulham and West Ham are understood to be keeping tabs on Downes, while Sheffield United, one of Wilson's former sides, and QPR have been linked with Woolfenden.
“They still have a lot to learn but those two can be as good as they want to be,” Wilson said in an interview for the programme for Saturday's game against another of his previous clubs Lincoln.
“I have not played with boys their age that good before. Don’t tell them that though, please!
“They have a hunger about them, which is great and they don’t seem fazed by anything.
“We know there are expectations on the team this season but they will be playing with a lot more expectations on them than now as they progress in their careers.
“They have incredible potential and it will be hard for us to hold on to them the way the game is now.”

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
