WREXHAM FC owner Geoff Moss has labelled Coventry City as ‘bandits’ for declining to make a compensatory payment after signing a schoolboy international.

Wales under-16 striker Will Roberts has just moved from Wrexham’s school of excellence to join Coventry’s youth set-up, but the Sky Blues refused to make an up-front payment, instead opting to make staged future payments.

Because Wrexham have been a Conference club for more than two seasons they fall outside the League compensation scheme.

But Moss said: “Although I asked their chairman to help us out, they have refused to make an up-front payment.

“Two other boys, Leon Newell and Rob Parry, who also played in the Victory Shield, have joined Birmingham City and Wolves respectively and both clubs have made discretionary up-front payments which will help in funding the cost of the school of excellence.”

Moss said he had written to Ranson in the following terms: “You should be ashamed of yourselves because we have had the boy trained by us for years and you pay no up-front compensation to a poor club like us. Bandits!”


Bandits and miserable gits! So much for helping bring on youth academies..........how many other clubs have affected by these tactics?! :angry:

Still doesn't make it right, Reedo...........if teams have taken the time and effort to train these kids then clubs, or more so their academies, should be recompensed, imo, especially if they're a much smaller club!

People steal players from FC. Rory Patterson is now at Plymouth. :ohmy:

That's what happens when you support a rubbish team. :angry:

No offence.

They're getting compensation, just not upfront over installments. Almost all football transfers are in installments now days

We're not taking millions of £s here, we're talking a few thousand............Coventry'll be paying one 1st team member more per week than Wrexham will want!! Academies need the money straight away not in 6 mths time!

Doesn't matter if it's £80m or £80 everyone follows the same rules in football

Have to agree with Sagem here, they could have bunged them a few grand as a goodwill gesture if nothing else... they're taking the player, if the academy is broke least they could do, imo, is help out. Probably would have made no difference to Coventry to have coughed up the first instalment or two up front. But that's the business of football now. When it was a sport they might have acted more sportingly. :dunno:
