Well, does this mean that another one of the Academy players are getting a chance in the side?

Ryan Edmondson has traveled with the first team on its trip south to face Norwich today. It’s a big step forward for the teenager who joined from York City this past November. It’s doubtful he’ll start, but at least getting to travel and get a spot on the bench is a big deal. Hopefully he’ll get some time in the second half.

On to the links.
