Foday Nabay

Could he be the one we will be saying in the future was the one that got away .
Foday now aged 14 is being courted by all the leading teams Man City, Chelsea, Man Utd he was offered the maximum he could be offered by Blues but so far has refused to commit to anybody after he severed his ties with Blues after his Registration expired.
He was spotted at the age of 9 playing for a local team in Sheldon by former education and welfare officer Barry Huntington,(my old PE teacher and former Carlisle player we Used to have a bet every year on who would finish higher in respective league Blues or Carlisle i won every time) who also scouted for the club.
For me this new system really does favour the big guns and surely is not good for the lower clubs as he all Blues will get is 65-85k for his training, Lee Calrk met with him to discuss his future and that looks like being decided next week on his return from holiday.



Nabay was called up for England Under-16s last summer and has regularly played for Blues’ Academy.

Born in Sierra Leone, he came to England and Birmingham with his mother and was spotted as a nine-year-old playing for a local side in Sheldon by Blues former education and welfare officer Barry Huntington, who also scouted for the club.

Nabay was brought into Blues Academy system and has developed a close bond with Academy director Kristjaan Speakman and his assistant Steve Spooner.

Blues have helped school Nabay, who lives with his mother near the Old Bill & Bull pub in Hay Mills on the Coventry Road.

He is, in essence, an adopted Brummie and speaks with a Brummie accent.

Blues are keeping their fingers crossed this stable and settled environment he has been growing up in, plus the relationship he has with the Academy and Clark’s words, will have a positive effect on his thinking.

Encouragingly for Blues, it has been three months now since Nabay’s registration ran out and despite the various talks he has had with other clubs he has yet to sign anywhere.

Blues are taking nothing for granted, however, and Nabay is likely to make a decision sometime next week when he has returned from a holiday.

Pannu's fault.

Why let his Registration run out? Especially if he's one for the future.

If he was in his mid 30's he would have already been on a contract.

not fair

The player and his Agent let it expire not the Club he was offered a new deal the best we or any other club are allowed to offer. But the likes of Man City have come up with a contract that means once he turns 17 he will get mega bucks for a person his age

You've got to stop blaming PP for everything including this shite weather. He simply isn't to blame for this sort of thing.

We have to face facts, we're a small club with small players. When a big club comes in a big player will go, simple as that I'm afraid. You can't blame the kid though, if someone gave me a contract to leave my current job saying in tow years we'll give you mega bucks, i'd be off.

Despite interest from numerous big League clubs from the Premier League the Kid as Agreed to stay with Blues,
The 14-year-old has signed an extended two-year student registration and accepted the offer of a two-year scholarship after that.

good to see that a smaller club can keep it young stars despite the big giants swooping, fair play to the lad.
You play your youngsters and it gives the others incentive too
