This link refers to the number of academy players that are in each team's squad. It's the whole squad and not just starters though.To be honest I probably overlooked previous times we musta had this sort of number of academy products on the field at same time, when you consider we had the likes of Bellerin, Gibbs, Wilshere, Iwobi in the squad together at one point the last few years.
Something I'd really like to know is percentage of starting premier league players that have come through the academy for the team they play. United have quite a few, grealish at villa etc. There's probably more than I first thought.
A fantastic achievement and IMO one we can build on. A lot of work has gone into Hale End over the last 5 years after some really tough seasons for both the U18s and U23s, one season which ended up with both sides finishing bottom of their respective divisions.
