How much do you guys invest in your youth academies? I was just wondering what a reasonable figure to start of with, would be, good enough to see some improvement, but little enough not to bankrupt me.

I'd imagine almost anyone should be able to invest around half that and get decent returns.
I'd go bankrupt in a month if I invested even half of that
100k into my youths a week.

Bunch of pops, majority of which were on tech.
I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
Forever, more than just surviving.
THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND

Shame he's only a med though. Youth squad has become bloated again so I've got seven players on the market.
"Under the spreading chestnut tree,
I sold you and you sold me."
Have 4 capable bowlers on the market at the moment, 3 of which are 19.
Drop in, have a yarn, make a bid.
End of over 20 (11 runs) - Dai-Gurren Brigade(172-2) RR 8.60
V. Miller 10 (10b) , L. Abraham 94 (62b) , C. Persad 2-0-18-0
cruising the youth game, Abraham is a legend in the making
Is anybody still in the cup? I got knocked out in round 5.
Out of the cup.
Hey guys is 21 too young to train someone on power/strength?

Not really. It trains fastest when they're in their mid twenties, but if he really needs it then you may as well train it now.
