Guys and gals
Just wanted to share with you a bumper selection of risers that I am nurturing in my Gold Championship 65 Aris squad. All are aged 23 or under, all will rise next time round and there are some good longer term prospects in here also.
Some names will be familiar to forumers but there are hopefully one or two less familiar ones that are worth exploring. I've sorted them by league for you.
Look out for the two players rated 60 who will be the next +15 or more risers!
Any comments let me know. Enjoy!
