Whitstable Town to launch U13s

After many years of no Youth Football association, Whitstable Town Chairman Gary Johnson today announced the re launch of Youth Football within the Club, as they plan to put together an Under 13 Team having applied to the Kent Youth League for the coming season.

Johnson commented ‘this was one of my initial three objectives when I took the Chair some three seasons ago; I have one matter now outstanding and that is to organise a ‘Supporters Club’ and I’m confident that this will happen soon too’.

What’s more Johnson added ‘this is an exciting step forward for the Club that has had no association with Youth Football (apart from the U18s) for many years although many thought we had; the U13s will be very much part of the Club and it is hoped that this will be the forerunner of other age groups under the Town banner. It’s another opportunity to embrace the local community and hopefully attract the fans of tomorrow whilst providing organised coaching & competitive football that could well see the youngsters of today be the Town players of tomorrow.

Chris Woollcott is to drive the U13s forward and said it’s a great opportunity for myself and the local lads who now have a path to follow in the footsteps of players like Scott Heard. We want to make the youth team a stepping stone to the senior teams for those who have the potential.

Trials will be held, for which all are welcome as under; however it would be helpful if you’d perhaps register your interest with Chris contacting him on 07840 540891 or by email chriswoollcott@hotmail.com
