Our Under-14 Academy part-time coach Gary Issot left at the end of last month to take up a full-time job at Crystal Palace. In thanking him for his services, we wish him well in his role as Under-18 coach at Selhurst Park.
His successor is our Development Coach Clive Allen's brother Bradley - pictured right - who took over the Under-14 team at the start of November.
Bradley, who played here as a schoolboy, enjoyed a professional career as a striker including spells at QPR, Charlton, Grimsby and more recently Chelmsford.
Away in May
We have now confirmed our participation in an end of season tournament in France in May. Our Under-18s will travel to Angers, France, on May 14-15, 2005.
Second Year Tommy Welch and First Year Nathan Peprah have both returned to full training following injury.
