Chelsea win FA Youth Cup again but John Terry was last youngster to come through ranks

Chelsea eased to their third consecutive - and fourth in five years - FA Youth Cup win last night when they saw off Manchester City 3-1 at Stamford Bridge to secure a 4-2 aggregate win .

With the young Blues also celebrating back-to-back UEFA Youth League trophies following their win over Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month, the huge investment that Roman Abramovich has made into the club's Academy appears to be having an effect at youth level.

But one of the chief accusations levelled at Chelsea is their poor track record of promoting youngsters into the first team, with John Terry being the last one to establish a first team place and that was over ten years ago.
