Youth Development Compensation

Recommended Posts

I see Dyce Juniors are receiving considerable compensation from the sale of Stuart Armstrong. I believe he was also in our youth set up before he went to Dundee Utd so I wonder if we qualify for some dosh?

I was thinking the same. It certainly appeats that we're due something as in the article on the BBC website it mentions that he moved from Dyce to ICT.   I don't know the full ins and outs of the system but I believe every training club is due a solidarity payment spread across 3 years.

Pedant alert:  It's Dyce Boys Club rather than Dyce Juniors (who are a Junior club rather than a juvenile club).  Dyce were the top boys club through here for many years and also produced the Shinnies, Ross Tokely and numerous others.  Chances are they pinched Armstrong off another juvenile club as they did with Graeme Shinnie who started off at Cove BC.  The club I'm involved with, Stonehaven Youth FC,  produced Iain Vigurs (before he was pinched by another club...) and Russell Duncan who was a loyal servant until he signed for the Dismal dons from school.  Plenty decent players through here who go under the AFC radar.

Here is the rules on solidarity payments...so I would say we were due 0.5% of the total compensation paid.  If it is £7 Million, then we'd be due £35k...if I'm reading it right.
