Reserves to play in Island Division 2

Last years under 17 team from the Mid Solent league will progress to mens football this season in Island League Division 2. The side have played together for many years and have already supplied Ryan Hughes and Ben Snow to the first team on a regular basis.

The management team of Stuart Simmonds, Marc Sheerin and Graham Snow have coached the players throughout their youth careers and will continue to do so as they move up into adult football.

The team will play at Northwood Rec for the coming season and move with the first team to our own ground when completed. They have arranged a number of pre-season friendlies which will be played at St. George’s Park – see Pre-Season friendly post.
