I am Shrinivas, from India. I am doing a project on Youth Academies of Football across Europe and wanted some data about Reading FC's Youth Academy. I would be really grateful if you can help me out with my queries:
1) Some stats would help. (Coaches, Pitches, Facilities available for youth players etc).
2) The number of years, that the academy in its present state is functional for, and some history about the academy.
3) Stars who've come through for Reading FC from the academy. Stars who've come through to represent other Premier League Clubs from the Academy.
4) Intake mechanism for players, support that is provided, catchment areas and regulations in the academy.
5) Any other articles about the establishment of the academy etc would also be really helpful!
Hope you guys can excuse the spam and help me out as it is really urgent!
