Academy developed U-21 England player, Michael Johnson was signed to Manchester City. The youth are really beginning to make inroads in the English Premier level of competition.

In the US, 67 clubs have “signed-on” with the USSF (“federation”) Academy program. Two fairly local groups, North Meck Soccer Association and South Charlotte were among the clubs selected to field teams in U16 and U18 age groups. More on the Federation discussion by our friends over at the NC Soccer Forum.

Academy development is good — and bad, but when exciting young players come through as the UK has shown, it can be terribly exciting.
