    E u20 CB who has been on the bench a couple of times and looked good for Spurs u21's whilst Poch and his team were watching.

    Good luck to him for the rest of the season - Cambridge play ManU in the FA Cup tomorrow, but not sure he will feature as he will only just have met his team mates !

    Good luck to him, a bit disappointed he didnt even get a League 1 loan but all the best to him.

    Unfortunately hype has alot to do with getting loans

    I do find it funny when comparing loans with other year groups. For example Caulker was a starting CB for Yeovil at 17 whilst Hall is a starting CB for Blackpool. Milos just managed to get a loan for Charlton and put in some good performances for Middlesborough

    Now Ball isn't 2 levels below Milos but he definitely isn't 2 levels below Hall who arguably didn't have a good season as CB for our development team

    I think this is when you need someone like Sherwood in the academy to get a better loan for players

    i find it amazing too that he is only at league two level if he was at united he'd have gotten a championship loan for sure

    Ball starts tonight in place of midfielder Liam Hughes who has sustained ligament damage - Ball joined from Watford aged 16 where he played in midfield and played there for the first couple of years at Spurs (and for Northern Ireland).


    BBC Cambs Sport‏@BBCCambsSport
    ' U's have lined-up 4-2-3-1 with Ball alongside Champion - ahead of the back four. #cufc

    Good luck to him on his professional debut v Dagenham & Redbridge

    66' Dominic Ball is replaced by Sullay Kaikai. Ball has been neat and tidy in central midfield. (1-1) #cufc

    He was subbed off at HT after Cambridge went 3-0 down in this game.

    Unused sub in the next 3 games until today.

    Seems to be playing at RB - not seen him play there for u18's/u21's. Hope he gets other chances at CB or even CM which are more his position

    Quotes for those who complain whenever we send someone on loan and they don't play constantly:

    "The experience at Cambridge has been massive for me. Being around the first team there and playing different styles of football has been really good.

    "I've probably learned a lot more in the last couple of months in terms of men's football than I have done elsewhere, so it's been a great experience for me.

    "I was prepared for what it was going to be like and I've enjoyed adapting to a different type of play and I want to try to establish myself in the team before the end of the season."'
