what an outstanding achievement, we've beaten both Liverpool and Everton, two Premiership clubs with long established youth set-ups whose budget for Youth is probably so way above ours that it's nearly out of sight !

Really well done Ose and all involved :bound: :hat: :bound:

Excellent performance by these young lads. Let's hope that it the first trophy of many for BFC during the Benham era.

Very proud, but as an aside I don't think I'm going to get to grips with the white backs to the shirts this season unless they are true to their word and stripes will be on them.

Love the headline on the BBC website........

Mexico, Desportivo Brasil and Brentford have secured wins in the finals of the Milk Cup youth football tournament.

Excellent ..... Channel 972 BBC2 NI showed highlights at half time of premier Final at around 9:15 pm with very complimentary discussion by the pundits afterwards, especially of our scorer, the exotically named Herson Rodrigues Alvez ..... candidate for a future song when he's in the first team I should think ....and the goals shown again again over closing credits at 10pm.
Looked like a good confident performance, Everton could have got one but we could have got 3 or more! Celebrations afterwards hilarious with milk everywhere !...
The BBC link above shows all the highlights too (apart from studio chat).
So proud of those boys, can't wait to see the cup paraded at GP!!!!

A great great result and a great start to the season before it has even begun.

A further upside, results like this will only encourage more high quality young players to join the Bees. Especially if we can offer the opportunity of earlier first team football compared to premiership alternatives

Still hate the shirts though :)

Absolutely fantastic achievement and brilliant to be able to watch the boys on TV. I'm not ashamed to admit I had a tear in my eye when we lifted the cup - very, very proud of everyone involved. :sorted:

Brilliant .....(shame about the shirts)
Sadly agree with you , the only thing I didn't like about the highlights - shirts look appalling, new training shirts are nice though, both red and black versions ... saw a few with them at Maidenhead, think I'll get one of those instead.

Well that's a good start for the Benham regime..... I understand the man himself flew in to watch the final. I hope he had a great time!

Oh someone mentioned above that the downside of winning (there's always one) is that we may have a few enquiries for the players. That's the point isn't it? Ultimately this is a business, not something that requires a never-ending pot of money.

If we do get enquiries, could there be good prices for the players, or is the price set by that structure I saw a while back depending on which category the club's academy is deemed to be?

I think the maximum for an under 16 was set at 300k don't remember what the rational was

As I understand it, if they are "taken" when still on youth contacts then yes the EPPP payment rules apply, however if they make development or first team squads then the normal transfer rules apply.

Don't think it was that high, but it is based on the number of years trained at the club, which is weighted based on category. We are category two.

£40,000 tops depending on academy status according to the BBC site. But has the plan come into force yet?

Tbh, the likes of BFC are always liable to lose some of their best young prospects to "bigger" clubs, often (usually?) without proper compensation - it's the way the game works, sadly.

However, the significance of successes like winning the Milk Cup is not just that the club will be able to receive better compensation. It also clearly demonstrates that the club knows how to nurture young talent as well as the Big Boys (better, in some cases), which means more parents/coaches/agents can be persuaded to send their kids to GP, rather than Chelsea, Arsenal, MU etc.

Spot on - Excellent post, agree 100% - the professional approach and organisation (without sacrificing fun and team spirit) of the coaching and medical staff with players even at his young age is a credit to them ALL.

I believe it has, but assume it doesn't apply retrospectively.

Well, if either of these are the case, how comes on here it says "Liverpools 1 million pound Midfield player"?

Really enjoyed watching the short highlights last night ( watched them again this morning on the BEEB web site). Congrats to every one concerned at the club, onwards and upwards. Have to say though shame, the occasion was sullied by those awful looking shirts.

BRENTFORD’S Milk Cup teenagers gave their club’s ambitious owner Matt Benham plenty to celebrate yesterday.


Benham jetted in specially to watch the League One underdogs lift the Junior title at the Ballymena Showgrounds.

Goals in either half from Herson Rodrigues Alves and captain James Ferry - from the penalty spot - earned the Bees a 2-0 victory over Everton at the Warden Street venue.

It was a proud moment for Brentford manager Danny Buck, and for owner Benham who jetted in for the afternoon.

“I am delighted for the lads to win this trophy,” Benham told the News Letter.

“This is the way we want to do it, by building from the ground up and building from within.

“We don’t want to be bringing in star players. That isn’t the approach we want to adopt.

“We have worked tirelessly for the last couple of years and we have developed the youth set-up.

“This is the club’s third year in the tournament and we have progressed every year.

“I am heading back to London in half an hour but I am pleased I came over to see the lads win. The trip was definitely worth it.”

Bees boss Buck added: “The owner is a massive Brentford supporter, and none of this would be possible without him.

“This is an achievement for him more than anyone. He has put the money in and backed the club’s youth and he got a result today.

“There was no added pressure with Matt being here, but it was nice to reward him in this way.”

Congratulations to to the team and management and this shows great things are developing at the club.It is an exciting time as a youngster to be at the club with Benham's vision, investment and desire along with the new ground.He is laying some solid foundations.My nephew plays fro QPR under 12's :( (yes don't ask how he ended up there) and without being bias is a tidy player and plays in the same team as Henry Wise (son of Dennis).I always watch a few games a season and QPR have always had the upper hand.This season Brentford have really pushed on and the last game i watched they thrashed QPR and looked very strong.It was interesting to note chatting to some of the parents from Brentford that we are tapping in to areas such as Brixton,Battersea and Crystal Palace.This proves our scouting network must be in full effect reaching further afield.

I look forward to seeing the youngsters hopefully parade the trophy pre-match vs Yeovil :sorted:
