Far better off training with the first team and integrating him in match days.

Good experience for him; hope he gets game time. Should get some good coaching from Ian Culverhouse!

I read somewhere they may have to terminate this years fixtures which wouldn't help him at all despite having Ian Culverhouse. Let's hope they can continue.
