I have been lucky enough to of been a part of this fantastic club for over 10 years, firstly in a playing capacity and now in various management roles. The Management squad and I are immensely proud to of had the responsibility and opportunity to enter a U23 Squad into the SCFL U23 Division for the first time in Roffey Football Club history.

Throughout the 2021/2022 season Roffey FC progressed 10 players from both U18 & U23 Squads into the First Team – showing a proven pathway progress.  The role of the U23 squad is a pivotal one within the club structure for the future of player development to take that next step into first team football.  One of the Roffey U23s management team aims are to make sure that all players within the club structure are progressing through from the U18 side and will be invited to train and play with the U23 side when the Youth Managers believe they are ready for this step into Adult Football.  Under FA Guidelines players must be 16 years old to be eligible to be selected for the U23 Team. 

Our aspirations for the 2022/2023 season will be to continue with our aim to support the first team with quality dveloped players  – Especially now that the first team have become a SCFL Premier team –  Also, to continue to encourage and develop the players into becoming the best players they can be with exceptional coaching, encouraging positive attitudes, being team players and having great work ethics, all of which will help each player to reach their potential.
