Because Playford are actively looking to encourage more young players into the squads so for the upcoming 2018/2019 season we are adding a Young Player of the Season award.
Since the formation of the Reserves five seasons ago we have seen a large decline in the number of U23's playing for Playford. In our Reserves' first season (2013/2014) 60% of appearances were made by players under 23 years of age but by last season that figure had dropped to 24%.
To qualify for the award players must be 23 or under on the opening day of the season.
Only four players aged 23 or under made more than six appearances last season and one of those starts 2018/2019 as a 24 year old, which means there is a great chance for a new young player to pick up an award in their first season with the club.
