Shade debut marks further Academy recognition
*Luke Turner speaks to Mark Fogarty about the latest talent off The Moors' conveyor belt*
PUBLISHED: 12th Apr 17
The work of the Moors’ Academy team was rewarded once again on Saturday as 16-year-old Tyrese Shade made his debut for the first team, coming on as a 75th minute substitute in the defeat at Tranmere Rovers.

Shade follows the footsteps of fellow academy star Callum Coyle who has also made his first appearances at first-team level in recent weeks.

Moors’ Director of Sport Mark Fogarty works tirelessly all year round alongside his academy colleagues to prepare the players for a potential path into the first team and he admits that it’s a great feeling to see their work recognised.

He said: “We’re very lucky this year to have a first-team manager who’s really interested in giving young players a chance. Often when you’re working in academies it can be a lot of hours or a thankless task when there is really no route through to a first team.

“With Callum Coyle and now Tyrese Shade having made their first-team debuts, it gives all the players and staff hope that the job they’re doing is recognised. Now there’s a real pathway through to playing first team football.”

Mark is currently in the process of assembling his staff together for the academy next season and the team will be almost double the size of what it was this year.

As well as this, the third lot of trials will be taking place this week as the potential youth of the future play for their places in next years’ academy.

There will be nearly 100 players on trial despite 76 places already being offered. It just shows the enormous interest in playing for the Moors’ Academy which means that a lot of people will unfortunately be left disappointed.

A current rising star in the academy is Romario Martin. He is continuing to impressing whilst on-loan at Highgate as his hat-trick helped the Midland Premier Division side to a 4-2 win against Shawbury.

That’s six goals in six games for him since going out on loan to a higher level as the development of The Moors’ ever-growing talent continues to get better and better.
