Young strikers in Reserves for Fulham

I just read an interesting article on The article was titled "Do We Really Need A Striker". The article was making a good argument that maybe Fulham does not need a striker in the transfer market. It gave examples of players already on the squad and possible position changes . What really got me interested was the information regarding the strikers in the reserves.

I believe that it is very important to build homegrown talent. I think that is why I am disappointed by Chris Smalling going to Manchester United. The young strikers mentioned in this article are Danny Hoesen and Marcello Trotta. Danny Hoesen is a Dutch Striker and Marcello Trotta is from Italy. According to the article these 2 players have been doing well in the reserves.

I was trying to find information about these players online . I was able to find a few articles about both. I think grooming young talent is very important for Fulham. I am curious if anyone out there knows more about these young players. If you do please feel free to comment on my blog.

I will be following these players in the future to see if they come up through the system. A great team needs homegrown talent along with transfers.

  1. Good news! I would think if Roy was thinking of moving them into the first team he would have used them a few times or at least put them on the bench.
