Collins is the only one to have played in the first team, making five appearances, the most recent coming in the 2-2 draw at Stoke on January 2.

Craig captained the Town youngsters to their unforgettable victory over Southampton in the two-legged final of the FA Youth Cup last April, while Lordan scored both goals in the first leg at St Mary's that ended 2-2.
