Back Of The Net!
We at CYP are proud to see one of our very own young people making it on the big stage! Earlier this year, League Two football club Gillingham FC signed Jayden Clarke from non-league team Dulwich Hamlet.
After channelling his love for football by playing in the U16 Coram’s Fields League, focus and determination saw him spend time with the Tottenham Hotspur’s academy, as well as play for Bedfont Sports and Hendon, reaching the London Senior Cup Final with the latter last season.
On his move to into the Football League, Jayden said “I’ve been working hard since I was a little kid to get a professional contract and it’s finally here, and now I need to push on again.”
Good luck with the season Jayden – we will be supporting from the side-lines!
