Can Biobanding level the youth field?

Biobanding involves bracketing young players according to their stage of physical development instead of the traditional age-based categories.

"We're trying to assist all players," says Gerry Britton - Partick Thistle's head of youth.

"Early-developers, we're trying to challenge them not to rely on their physicality, they have to work on other technical attributes and likewise for the late-developers to give them the opportunity to play against players in a similar stage of development. So it's just really trying to level the playing field for them."
