Progression through the ranks, at a Premier League club, is always a huge ask.
The step up in class sorts the wheat out from the chaff and, inevitably, youngsters fall by the wayside.
Yesterday, one of our promising youngsters, twenty-one year-old Alex Smith left Craven Cottage but moved to the County Ground, Swindon, to resurrect his career in League One.
Here at Vital Fulham we`d like to wish Alex all the best for the future and we hope the move works out for him.
