The Academy Awards
Scott Harrison said that it has been a successful season for the Academy, despite all the breaks in play due to the lock down. It was a difficult decision to choose the award winners as there were many players that have contributed to a great season; any one of the squad that were regulars in the FA Youth Cup played a major part.
The main highlights from this season were:.
- The FA Youth Cup run saw us reach the 3RD Round for the first time in 25 Years – eventually losing at Brighton and Hove Albion.
- In the 1st Round proper of that run we were away at Leyton Orient and came from 2 goals down to win the game 3-2; a performance to be really proud of
- We were sitting 2nd in the National South U19s League until it was curtailed
- A number of Academy Players gained 1st team opportunities and there were National League Debuts from Jack Skinner, Leo Hamblin, Sam Evans, Selim Saied & Jayden Wareham, who also scored 2 National League Goals at the age of 17.
- Leo Hamblin played full 90-minute performances at the back end of the National League season
- Jayden Wareham deservedly joined Chelsea after all the work put into him by the Academy staff over the last 2 years
The winners from the Academy were:
- 1st Year Academy Player Of The Year – Jack Bingham
- 2nd Year Academy Player Of The Year – Jake Rumble
- Academy Player of the Year – Trevor Caborn
