The season of 2021 – 22 saw the introduction of our new Youth Development Centre (YDC) at the club. The YDC is aimed at our strongest team in each year group and provides an enhanced membership, enabling those teams to retain, attract and develop the best players in the local area.
Designed for year groups U11 and above, upon certain criteria being met such as playing in the upper divisions of the Epsom & Ewell or Surrey Youth League, the club invite teams to join the YDC with the aim of giving them all the tools required to compete with the major clubs in the area.
Amongst other things, the players concerned will be training twice a week, will have access to additional coaches and also enjoy specifically branded clothing and equipment.
In our first season we were delighted to welcome the U11, U14 and U15 teams to our YDC, all of whom have hugely benefited from the new programme and enjoyed successful seasons.
