Ebbsfleet United’s Academy is celebrating the elevation of its latest prospect to the first-team squad and is now offering a handful of players the chance to fill the final few places for our forthcoming 2019/20 season.
Managed by former Ebbsfleet, AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham legend Danny Kedwell, the Fleet Academy side will this season play in the U19 National League Youth Alliance and Tactic League.
The Academy has just seen midfielder Zach Dainkeh sign a first-team contract and several of our other talented youngsters have played pre-season games this season against the likes of Tottenham, Charlton, Brighton and Dartford, including Tahjae Anderson, James Magri, Zine Eddine Gaoua and Mathew Achuba. Last season, around 15 of our Academy squad also saw action in the Kent Senior Cup and trained alongside the first team.
If you are between 16-18 years of age and to take advantage of this opportunity to join the Fleet, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Academy will be based in Gravesend, Kent, so ideally you will be within travelling distance of north Kent.
