Alfie Grant is playing at Highmoor Ibis.

[I don't check these stories for accuracy, so don't know if these players are genuine ex-Oxford United youth, or what age group they played in. Is the Academy the school that is linked to the club, or the actual youth development system?].

You do a good job on these, keep it up:

The general setup is that OUFC have their proper youth system with age group teams from 11s up to 16s, at which a handful are offered two years scholarships in the U18s 'youth team'. The lucky few move on from here into the Dev Squad and pro deals.
There is also the Academy which basically offers one or two year courses for 16year olds, mainly to those from outside the club/system who have missed the boat earlier in the career with a few of our U16s that did not make the cut for the U18s, to mix playing and learning about sports psychology/coaching etc. The occasional one or two standout students (eg Hayden) get offered proper scholarships within the official youth team on the back of how they perform on the course/field (there are 1 or 2 teams from this scheme that play in youth leagues - name of which escapes me - but these are completely separate entity to the main youth team and youth league).

George Jeacock is still with the U's
Jordan Graham, Lewis HAyden, Duran MArtin, Keiron D-B, AJ George and Alfie Grant were all in the youth team proper at some stage, but were released after graduating.
THe other names are not familiar off the top of my head, but that does not mean they have not been involved at some stage (kids are added/released at every age group)
Incidentally, we still have Roberts, Cundy & Ashby at Oxford City as was Keeper JAck STevens until recently.
