FM17 Youth Academy Challenge - Tandragee - First Season Review
In the previous update on our Tandragee story we reviewed the first win of the season. In this update we are going to be fast forwarding to the end of the first season.
So how did it go?
Well I am pleased to say we managed to survive our first season and we did not get relegated. Although at some stages we did go very close to getting relegated.

When you are on a tight budget, if you improve yourself as a coach, this can mean you are able to coach and train your players to a better standard.
The most important part of the youth academy challenge is the youth intake you get every season.
Review of the first youth intakeSo how was the first intake I received through my academy?

The players potential is very high as the players we have in our first team are not very good. Remember that when you are checking out current and potential ability the star ratings are compared to players you have in your first team squad.
How will I develop these players?
It will be important to make sure any youth players we get through are good enough for the first team. I will leave most of the young players in the development squad to get some time to develop and to play games at the under 18 level.
I will be trying to tutor the players (although I don't have a great deal of tutors at the moment). I will be working on their training schedules. Its going to be important to work on their physical attributes and the key attributes for the role I want to play them in.
I will move some of the better youth players into my first team. These players will develop quicker, but I don't want to have to many of them in my first team as they are only 16-17, so they will be inconsistent.
As the idea of the youth academy challenge is to not sign any players at all, here is a screenshot of the transfers for the first season:

Next season is all about survival, but season three I will be looking to gain promotion if we can. We need to push the club on to try and earn more money so we can invest that into the facilities of the club. It will be a very long process considering that in Northern Ireland the money is not going to be very good. The only way we will really make any money is to try and get into the Europa cup. A decent tie in the qualifying round would be great in terms of making money.
