The first team currently sit top of the National Football Youth League and in National Cup Final after a strong run of form seeing them win no less than 20 games on the bounce in the league and cup. They sit 13 points clear of Crystal Palace, who have 4 games in hand but know that if they win against their rivals they cannot be caught. It is also Crystal Palace who stand in their way in the cup final which is scheduled to be played at Premier League ground Selhurst Park on 23rd May. Dev Squad look to retain Walsh Cup Despite both the reserve side and the development squad finishing 2nd in their leagues, there is still another trophy to play for as the Dev Squad take on Forest School in the Walsh Cup Final in May. They will be looking to retain the title after winning last year’s final on penalties.

Cameron came to us through our partner club Eldon Celtic JMA U16’s and has played in a number of games for our U16 side this season also earning trials with League 2 side Swindon Town and League One side Oxford United. Director of Football, Michael Butcher said “We are so pleased for him. He is a great lad with a mature head on his shoulders.
