Can our U18's pick up the club's first piece of silverware of the season?
This Thursday, our U18’s side take on Lewes U18’s in the Sussex Bluefin Dennis Probee Youth Cup Final at Culver Road (Sussex HQ) – 7:15pm kick off.
Manager, Paul Fowler, said: “To get to the final is a great achievement with the teams that are in the competition – top teams like Whitehawk, Lewes, Worthing. For about eight of our players, it will be their last game for the under-18s as they are stepping up to the under-23s so it is brilliant for them. The County Cup is a massive competition.”
“We are giving young players opportunities and it shows as there is a young lad, aged 19, who has just got into the first team. It shows if you work hard you will get a chance.”
Paul continued, “We had an under-23 game last week and we had seven or eight under-18s playing, so it is good for the club. Two of the boys on the bench were 16-year-olds who have just come over. It shows it is working from getting players to the club and producing them for the under-23s. It is a good set-up. We are giving young players opportunities and it shows as there is a young lad, aged 19, who has just got into the first team. It shows if you work hard you will get a chance.”
For the club, this is the second of three Sussex Cup Finals of the season; with our Ladies side and First Team also making it all the way.
Get yourself down to Culver Road and support our club’s next generation.
