Football League to discuss B team proposal

The 72 member teams of the Football League are due to meet to discuss the B team League Three proposal made by the commission established by FA chairman Greg Dyke, Sky Sports has reported.

Premier League clubs would be able to field B teams in a newly-created League Three, according to the plan, in an effort to give young players more competitive game time and aide their development.


Dyke presented the report in early May and it was roundly criticised by Football League members, Bradford City chairman Mark Lawn saying: “Nobody understands how playing at Conference or League One level can help any player make it to play for England.


“There is a general consensus that it wouldn't work and would not be good for our club football either,” Lawn added. “The FA need to go to the Premier League and say they should have a limited number of foreigners but they won't do it.”


The Football League are to present their counter-proposal after the summit in Faro, Portugal. It is believed the riposte would back the establishment of Premier League B teams but the teams would compete in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, with the tournament expanded to include a group stage.


Also known as the Football League Trophy, the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy currently sees the 48 clubs of Leagues One and Two divided on a regional basis with the winners of the area finals - North and South - meeting in the final at Wembley. Peterborough United are the competition’s current holders.
