New U18s get put to the test.
Our new first years got to meet Glenn Speller of BBC Essex and Jon Waldron of the Daily Gazette as they explained the background to their job and the expectations they have of footballers when it comes to interviews.
The lads also got to interview each other, ensuring that they avoided the pitfalls that might be in the way and how to conduct themselves in the public spotlight.
You'll be able to see their first appearance on video soon, as we introduce you to the eight new boys that have joined us at Florence Park this season.
We'll also be launching an Academy Twitter feed in the near future, with the boys giving you the lowdown on life at the U's.
