Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan believes home-grown talent is the future and will help the club to promotion to the top flight next season.
The Eagles' chances of promotion this season have faded, but they have been playing impressively of recent and Jordan is optimistic it will be Crystal Palace's season next time out under boss Peter Taylor.
"If ultimately this season we don't achieve our promotion aim, which looks the case, Peter and I intend to shake things up so that next year we are really ready," Jordan told the Croydon Guardian.
"We have a plan and a strategy," he added. "Significant investment both financially and logistically has gone into our academy.
"We are seeing the fruits of these efforts with talent coming through - Lewis Grabban, Lewwis Spence, Aaron Fray, Rhoys Wiggins, David Wilkinson and behind them, Victor Moses, Sean Scanell and John Bostock to name a few.
"These players really want to play for Palace and have the passion for the club we have, coupled with good experienced players, who want to be here, will get us success."
