With the Split of U16 and U17, Alby is going to have a hard time filling up the two different years with quality players. Where would another whole team of quality U17 players even come from? And if LISC steals a few quality girls from ALBY then we'll have 2 weak teams on the Island. If LISC is granted that year I don't think it is going to work out well for them or ALBY. They don't need to put a team on the field that can't compete right now. They should wait another year to apply for the U17 level.
I completely agree! I really respect what LISC is trying to build and they're really making steps in the right direction. But let's be honest, their 04 team was solid this year because of a few powerhouse players they picked up from Fury, added to a base of some pretty good players from KK Atletico. The 05s struggled tremendously and they are already adding the 06 age group. I could see if LISC's current 03 team was killing it in EDP, but they're struggling in the lowest level-not sure how adding a handful of players from a very weak Alby GDA team would really help.
Bottom line, if there are 03s still looking, why not just play for the LISC EDP team in that age group? That coaching staff is so solid and so connected, wouldn't the kids be better off playing at a more appropriate level?
Idk, with all the unknowns with the 05 and 06 age groups, slapping together a team of GDA 03s just for the heck of it, doesn't really make much sense.
