Academy Update 13.12.19.
Open trials announced for 19th and 20th February 2020
There was no Academy Elite game this week with their fixture against Welling United being postponed until next Wednesday. In the absence of an Elite fixture, the Development 1 side took centre stage with an Academies League Cup Quarter-Final against Dover Athletic. With neither side senior team’s playing, both drafted in players, but it was the Crabble-based side that proved the stronger running out 3-1 winners. Josh Reed scoring the home side’s goal.
A first clean sheet of the season added to the celebration of a win for Rhys Bartlett’s Development 2 squad as they emerged with a 2-0 win over Northfleet with goals from goalkeeper (yes, goalkeeper!) Josh Watfa, who scored with a punt from his own penalty area and Luke Ogunbanura.
The Academy are pleased to announce the dates of their Open Trials on Wednesday, 19th and Thursday, 20th February at Hugh Christie School from 10am to 1pm. To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
