It is with great excitement that we announce a huge number of our players have been snapped up in one go by GIllingham FC.

This is a massive achievement by the players and their hard work has paid off by being signed by the Kent based club. For so many to be signed for one age group is a very rare thing to happen and credit must go to the boys.

We are pleased to announce that 6 of our under 8s have been signed up for next years under 9s squads, with Xavier and Joe from the Thanet Academy going into the full academy squad where they are joined by Noah and Zach from the Faversham Academy. Ollie and Jack have also been signed up to the Advanced under 9s squad to complete the huge amount of players moving across from TSC to the Gills.

Head Coach Seb Tidey comments “This is a great achievement by the 6 boys and demonstrates how their are now opportunities for the boys in the east kent area to progress. When we set up TSC it was with the intention of making the East kent area a hotbed of talent, creating numerous professional footballers. These boys are very much at the start of their journey and its a long way to the top, but they have the opportunity to progress in a pro club environment and we wish them the best of luck. Gills arent just gaining talented players, they are gaining players with a great work ethic and atittude as well”
