Sevenoaks Town has today announced its plans for its Kent Youth League teams for the 2017/2018 season.
The club will be entering teams into the Kent Youth League at U13's, U14's, U15's and U18's level which is the highest number the club has ever had at this level of the game.
The club will be running trial days for all of these teams in April and May which will be attended by members of the First Team coaching staff including manager, Micky Collins. The club is looking for talented and driven players to join all of these teams for next season - to register your interest, click here.
The club is thrilled that Luke Mitchell and Adam Law will be joining the club to run the U15's next season. The duo, who have been coaching together for the past seven years, impressed the club with their approach to developing players.
The pair had this to say about joining the club: "We're delighted to have agreed to join Sevenoaks Town. Once we met the club's committee, there was no way we could turn down this opportunity. Their vision for the club from top to bottom is something we are looking forward to becoming part of."
"The club's plan to develop players matches our footballing ideals. The facilities and support structure, combined with our experience and passion for progressing young footballers, should make Sevenoaks Town U15's an attractive environment for any aspiring footballer to play within."
"We can't wait to get started and look forward to the 2017/2018 Kent Youth League season in the Sevenoaks Town dugout!"
Meanwhile, the U13's will continue to be run by Toby Lansdale, the U14's by Sam Lansdale and the U18's by Darren Mace, Andy Swift, Terry Wilmore and Frank Le Sbirel.
Next season, the Kent Youth League teams will train twice a week on the club's 3G pitch which will include an integrated session to enhance the cohesion of the Kent Youth League teams and the pathway into senior football. The teams will also have chances to go on tour within Europe to train with and play against Academy sides or compete in high-profile tournaments.
First Team manager, Micky Collins, said: "We've put in a huge amount of effort behind the scenes to ensure our Kent Youth League teams are structured in the best possible way next season."
"Ultimately, we want to nurture young talent and develop players for First Team football. This doesn't happen overnight but, as Jack Miles has proven, youngsters know that they will get opportunities here. Jack joined the club at fifteen and seven years later he's scoring the winning goal in an FA Cup tie in front of a crowd of nearly 500. "
"It's an exciting time to be involved at Sevenoaks Town: the 3G pitch is going down this summer, the First Team are on course to break last year's record points tally and we've got big aspirations for the years to come both on and off the pitch."
