I found myself watching Paulton v Hereford a couple of weeks ago, when we didn't have a fixture, as we stayed with friends who live up there. I got talking to a young goalkeeper who has come thro' Bristol Rovers academy but who for various reasons was recently training with our U18's. In addition to Ethan Ampadu he also spoke of how impressed he was with Jack Sparkes.
He advised that the training at City's academy was far more intensive than at Bristol Rovers. Watching City's young keepers, Pym, Hamon & some of the others he realised that he probably won't be good enough to 'make it' but he was very impressed by our youth set up & spoke very highly of Dan Green & Simon Hayward, which, although not surprising, is still good to hear.
Been really impressed with him on a few occasions I have seen him play. I worry with his size that will be a similar situation to Matt Jay in terms of having bags of skill, but not the size to have a real impact on a game.
