'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - League Clubs say 'Yes' to the EEEP

A meeting today was held at Walsall`s Bank`s Stadium to discuss, and vote, on the Elite Player Performance Plan proposals.

Following a lengthy discussion, the plans were passed with a majority of forty-six to twenty-two - with three no shows and one abstention.

This new plan will increase the amount of coaching contact time for players in the countries`s top, category one, academies. This will mean that the time coaches spend with young players will no longer be restricted to the ninety minutes a day. It also means that the 'young players must live within ninety minutes of the club` will also be lifted

Payments to clubs youth development will increase but the regulations will include the abolition of the transfer tribunal system. This will be replaced by a fixed level of compensation and mean that a value will be put on the player for each year he has spent at the academy. Extra payments would happen if the player should play any first team football at the buying club while the selling club would get a percentage of any future transfer fees.

I don`t know, seems like the Premiership and top Championship clubs are going to come out of this much better than a club like Rotherham United. Are we going to become just a nursery for the 'big` clubs?

Thoughts anyone?
