The Team

ALEX McGRATH Joined in our first season and has been   outstanding in goal ever since. A tough brave keeper who shows high quality   skill and vision. One of the team’s vice captains and a true leader on the   pitch
DAN MASON Transferred from Ashford Town last year. A   quick thinking and speedy right sided player who can play well with his feet   and his head. A welcome addition to this year’s squad and a popular and   intelligent player.
ELLIOT NEWELL Joined in the close season from the East Kent   League. A player of raw talent and has made excellent progress in his short   time with us, has already won a Man of the Match in pre-season and shows   great promise as a right back
JACK BARDRICK The team’s captain, centre back and all round   good guy. A solid defender who commands in the air and can bring the ball out   of defence with style. Jack has grown into the Captains role in the last year   and his rapport with management and teammates is excellent.
JACK PAXMAN New to this year’s squad having won the   Division for the last two years with Ramsgate as their right back. Jack is   now forging a new career as an attacking midfielder/second striker and has   bagged four excellent goals pre-season. Fast, technically gifted and with an   engine that just keeps running he has a great season ahead of him
JACOB GINNAW Obi (as he is known) has signed as our reserve   keeper and will continue to play in the East Kent League as well. A versatile   player who has kept goal well in his warm up games pre-season and can also   play outfield if required. A fun guy with a quick wit who has gelled well   with the squad
JAMES VOGLE Another new addition to this year’s squad   coming from the East Kent League where he was one of the leading scorers.   Stepping up a level this season and has proved his commitment with his own   fitness regime that has already shown benefits.
JOE GARRETT Joe has been with us since under 13s and has   held a central midfield place ever since starting almost every game. Joe   brings a keen football brain to the team and his pass and move game brings   flair to the midfield unit. His passionate play always creates chances and   important assists; many of Joe’s goals over the past seasons have come at   crucial points in a game. His all round contribution makes Joe a key member   of the squad.
JOSH HOWLAND Another long term member of the squad who can   play on both sides of defence and also midfield. A robust tackler, creative   passer and resilient player when things get hard, developing into a wing back   with some style Josh never lets his head drop and continually strives to make   the whole team a success on the pitch and at training
JOSH NEAVES A technically gifted player who joined from   Gillingham academy last year. Playing on the right side of midfield or behind   a central striker Josh’s quick feet, intelligent play and all round awareness   make him an assists to the team, perhaps one of the more understated players in   style which belies his obvious ability
JOSH ROFFE A natural left footer with pace and strength   who can cross the ball well. His raw talent and his dedication to training   are showing improvement every time he plays. Josh is a popular member of the   squad and we expect him to provide vigour and power to the team’s left side.
LEWIS KING A strong lad with pace and touch who will run   until he drops for the team. Already in his first month with us has shown   progression and has contributed well to pre season. Able to play in several   positions he will offer options for the team we didn’t have last year.
NATHAN FRENCH Since u13 season Nathan has developed and   improved to one of the squads strongest players both physically and   technically. A real bulldozer of a player who combines an aggressive style   with deft skill that makes him a massive handful for the opposition. A player   with ‘attitude’ which gives him an edge to his game that the opposition find   hard to handle.
PAUL BUXTON Paul was selected two years ago and has   exceeded all expectations, which were high. Naturally left footed Paul can   outwit and outfox opposing players with his dribbling and ability to change   direction and pace at will. Paul has developed into the holding midfield role   with a maturity that belies his age; a real pleasure to watch and coach
SAM CRISFORD Transferring for Bearsted in the close season   Sam is an accomplished and stylish centre back who has many attributes to his   game. He has already forged an excellent understanding with Jack and between   them in pre season have shown the potential to become the fulcrum of the   team. A quiet personality but a strong and durable player who can create   opportunities from defence; a great addition to the team
TOM BUGDEN Selected to play a year up for us in the u13   debut season and who has started almost every game since. Able to play in so   many areas with his understated and entertaining style Tom possesses great   technical control which delivers assists and goals. A superb season last year   and a great pre season show how important Tom is to the team.
JOSH NiiNORTY A striker who has improved dramatically over the   season and a half he has been with us. Big strong and with deadly pace Josh   creates mayhem in the opposition box. His style of play disrupts any defence   and causes headaches for opposition players. Not the most prolific of scorers   the space Josh creates allows others to capitalise on chances and pre-season   has shown real promise; Josh was appointed as the second Vice Captain this   year
