Tamworth

A very decent idea.

Exchange of knowledge and experience between coaching staff, a place to accelerate our young players development by exposing  them to men's football earlier than may normally be possible, and a chance for Tamworth's staff to possibly learn from a professional coaching team from a higher level.

Win win.

Can only see things like this being a good thing. We send some out our lads on loan to gain first team experience and we potentially get first dibs at any youngsters they have. 

It is no bad thing to forge local links, however...

I'm not trying to be negative but we're talking about the Southern League Premier Division Central (level 7, 3 levels below League 2) which is one level above Mickleover Sports in the Southern League Division One South.

Sending our kids out on loan at that level tends to be last chance saloon for them in the hopes that they can forge out a career in football at all, even a semi pro one (see Jauvan Splatt who was loaned to Mickleover and now plays for Whitehawk FC in the Isthmian League South East Division, also level 8 ) but isn't something we're likely to do to give them senior football in the hopes that they may one day make our team.

We're not looking at a Vardy situation here, snatched up from the National League (level 5), we might not even be looking at a Ben Pringle situation when we took him from Ilkeston (whatever level 'Non League Premier' was in 2008!)

…you mean aside from our future players all having a slight Brummay accent and saying “tarrarabit” at the end of training 👀

Might be a good situation. Some of the scholars from teams like Tamworth were at clubs like Villa before or vice versa, when they're young, you could have SOME players of similar abilities playing for semi pro teams, college/school teams and academies of leading clubs. Development is key and some players develop late or just are not spotted by top clubs early on.
