The U23s this season will be playing in the Essex Olympian League Division Three. The team was set up as a gateway for youth players from our U18s to get ready for the Senior team and this is already starting to bare fruit. The team is managed by Darren Gosnell, who works closely with the First Team so as to get his players ready for the Senior football. Darren will be managing the club’s FA Youth Cup team this season, and will be looking to build on his achievements last season with the U23s who were runners-up in the Reserve Division Cup.
Darren joined the club in October last year 2021.
