Wotte: young talent will benefit from keeping under-20s league

Mark Wotte, performance director of the Scottish Football Association, has praised the decision of SPFL Premiership clubs to "provide a pipeline of talent" by keeping the current SPFL under-20 league and not reverting back to a reserve competition.

The Dutchman is convinced the under-20 format is the best way to develop promising players into first-team regulars.

"It has given those on the brink of first-team football the extra incentive and motivation to take that all important next step," he said.

"I believe the decision to show ongoing support for the under-20s format will be vindicated."
