Scudamore criticises B Team Proposal


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Saturday 10 May 2014

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has criticised the FA’s proposal to introduce an extra division within the Football League to comprise ‘B’ Teams, BBC Sport has reported.



The proposal is part of FA chairman Greg Dyke’s plan to improve the fortunes of the England national team, and was announced on Wednesday following a meeting of the eight-man commission.


It would involve a League Three being created in between League Two and the Conference Premier, a division which would feature Premier League ‘B’ teams, although several Football League clubs have reacted angrily to the idea.


Some Premier League clubs and their managers have openly welcomed the possibility of their B teams being involved in the lower divisions, but Scudamore believes that it is not the way to go to help the England team, which has not reached a major tournament semi-final since 1996.


Scudamore said: "I don't believe we should be wrecking the pyramid of English football to achieve that. We all understand the issue. How do you take all this investment and progress in youth development and, from 18 onwards, convert them into players who are capable of holding their own in the Premier League and becoming England-qualified talent?


"That is the challenge we all have. I can't contradict what I have said before many times before and truly believe. We must see if there is a credible alternative before we go decimating the Football Conference and the Football League. That is something we need to try and protect almost at all costs."
