Development Squads (U18s & U23s)

Development Squads
Our Development Squad consists of two age group sides; an U18 team and an U23 team, both falling under the watchful eye of UEFA B licensed coach, Ashley Bosah, who is not only our Assistant First Team Manager, but is also both Head of our Football Academy and the Club’s Head of Development
U18 Squad - This squad provides a natural progression in our football pathway and is a great opportunity for those that have played in our junior teams to continue their progression towards football at a senior level. Ashley is assisted in his work with our U18s by former First Team player Jordan Wilson, who is also now studying for his UEFA B coaching license. The squad currently complete in two leagues, The SportsWik Isthmian Youth League during the week and on Sundays in the Tandridge Youth Football League. They also represent the Club in a number of Cup competitions including the prestigious FA Youth Cup and are the current holders of the Kent Youth League Invitational Cup, having beaten Maidstone United in last season's final
U23 Squad - Our U23 side provides the next step in the football pathway and bridges the gap for those youngsters looking to make that jump from youth to adult football at a senior level. Whilst Ashley and Jordan are very much involved in the U23s too and it remains within Ashley’s overall remit, the lead coach assisting him here with this squad is another UEFA B license holder, Cornelius Nwadialor. Currently our U23s also compete in two leagues, the BlueFin Sports Insurance Isthmian Development League during the week and on Saturdays, in the Suburban Football League. A number of players from this season's U23 squad have had the opportunity of gaining experience in our First Team and three have now become regular First Team squad members, competing for us in the Bostik Premiere League
The club usually holds trials for the Development squad during May of each close season however if you would like any further information about joining up with either our U18s or U23s then please contact Ashley Bosah on 07720 635074 or by e-mail at
