Paul Doswell sought to clarify the newspaper reports today regarding Josh Taylor.''Josh has been the subject of interest from a number of clubs including Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic. He trained with Wigan on Monday and Tuesday last week and did very well, and has been invited back when our schedules suit. Josh has been superb since he joined and his work ethic and personality in the group has shone through.As a club we take huge satisfaction in letting our young players progress into the Football League and this model is vital in attracting these players in the first instance to Sutton United. We currently have four first team players in Anthony Jeffrey, Louis John, Tommy Wright and Josh Taylor who are 23 or under and the interest in all these players shows how much progress they are making. Louis in particular has grown into a really good centre half and fully deserved his England C call up. Tommy Wright has also shown huge improvement, and it's a great credit to him and his work on the training ground that he has started the season so well, and kept more senior players out of the side.These young players have a fantastic environment to work in and great credit should go to the senior players and coaching staff, in particular Bairdy, who have passed on such valuable knowledge and encouragement to them.Finally thank you to the large travelling support for their great support at Paulton Rovers yesterday. It was a difficult, typical FA Cup away game against lower opposition who gave everything and we were pleased to come away with the win.''
