Lion, when you speak about the best back in the competition I presume you are speaking about the new guy at Ipswich Rangers, it is amazing what one good player can do, he has changed that team from a Div two team into a top 3 Div one team. The selectors should bend the rules and get that boy playing in the green team. there chances of winning will quadruple if he was to play, it is a shame he arrived just after selection time.
Big call on one player making "headlines" in Division 2, I believe the gap between U13 Div 1 "Teams" and U13 Div 2 "Teams" is very BIG, not talking about individual players mind you just talking about teams, reason for this is that for a "team" to succeed at the highest level they need more than one superstar they need others to do their job really well and then some.
Not sure if Ipswich won a game in Div 1 but they opted to drop to Div 2 I believe they are now winning games against Div 2 "Teams".....
