I guess Larouci might be the one closest to making it but i dont think he plays u23 yet. If we are looking for a back up, i dont think we need to rush a signing as their impact can be made in the latter part of the season.If we had a youngster in that position even at Hoever's age and level (young but highly promising), I'd say we should absolutely go ahead on that basis. In fact, that would almost be my preferred scenario to signing a more experienced backup for the role.
But by all accounts, from those that regularly watch the kids play, Adam Lewis is nowhere near good enough and not looking likely to become so.
At the very least I'm hoping we bring in someone like Sepp Van Der Berg but for the LB spot, someone with potential who bridges the gap between the academy and first team, as it seems like a noticeable gap we have even in the U23s.
