Swiss whiz Kerim Frei is already catching the eye this season.
â€śReaching the First Team is what itâ€™s all about,â€ť Symons told fulhamfc.com. â€śKerim could still be playing for the U18s but obviously we havenâ€™t seen him this season because heâ€™s moved up to the Reserves and First Team, which is fabulous.
â€śI donâ€™t think Marcello Trotta is that far away and we want them to be pushing on. As a youth coach you take enormous satisfaction from seeing the boys reaching the First Team.
â€śWe try and get the players to a level that we feel theyâ€™ll be able to play in the First Team and then itâ€™s at the Managerâ€™s discretion whether he chooses to play them or not. It gives the Manager a choice and hopefully we can send players up that will be good enough to play in his team.â€ť
