Can somebody update us on the new player, Jonny Efedje.
Also, Lewis Hoy, goalkeeper & why Killian Barrett, goalkeeper doesn't get a look in?
Something else I've learnt about some of our players is the distance that they travel to get to our ground
e.g. Kingsley Eshun from Wembley, Anis Nuur from Bermondsey and some of the others from East London. Very commendable as they have to travel to our ground for training as well.
Hope someone can help.

    Jonny Efedje actually signed for us in August I'm told, but has been out on a dual registration getting game time. Similar story for Lewis Hoy, who has done well for us in the past when called on. Killian Barrett is a good young keeper who is building experience. He was called into the first team squad earlier this season as an emergency, but we'll hopefully see more of him as his game matures.

      Good timing Ray, you'll have seen that Killian "got a look in" between the sticks away at Harrow last night.

      Leon Baker (Leon Baker-Neto to give him his full name) has joined on a dual registration from Havant & Waterlooville. The 18 year-old central midfielder, who came through Havant's academy and signed first team forms in January 2022, spent a loan period with Bognor Regis Town in the Isthmian Premier earlier this season.

      Shae Hutchinson (22) has joined us from Farnborough on dual registration. The striker was with the Norwich City academy and featured in their U23 team until leaving the Canaries by mutual consent in March this year.

      Shae's story is tinged with sadness but inspiring at the same time. Shae was diagnosed with Alport Syndrome at 8 years old and the condition worsened around the age of 16. During his time with Norwich City he underwent two kidney transplants.

      In January 2020 he scored three goals in four Premier League 2 fixtures and was nominated for a Player of the Month award. That was after his return from his first transplant, which had sidelined him for most of the 2018-19 campaign. Google him if you'd like to read more; I found his story truly inspirational. Great to have you on board, Shae.
