City Launch Under 23’s Squad
Posted by Guildford City FC
For next season Guildford City Football Club is pleased to announce the exciting introduction of an Under 23 Development squad. Playing in the Combined Counties League U23 Division.
Guildford City U18’s currently play in the Allied Counties League, and the aim in conjunction with our friends at Guildford City Boys & Girls FC, is to provide a suitable stepping stone from youth football to Step 5 in the FA’s national pyramid.
Club Secretary Barry Underwood said “This is a big step forward for Guildford City FC. We have talked for some time about a player pathway for local lads, and now we are delighted that together with the Junior Club we are able to move things forward.”
Chairman of Guildford City Boys & Girls FC Warren Le Page echoed these views saying “The U23’s is a fantastic opportunity for both clubs to work closely together. We are very excited in creating a player pathway from our junior youth team to the senior side. I would like to thank both committee’s for all of their hard work to make this happen.”
Guildford City U23's first match was a friendly against Guildford City FC (Seniors). It was brilliant match, which brings alot of hope for the future.
Here is what Warren Lepage and Theo Woodhouse had to say...
