Our development squad (Under 20s) have been busy in recent weeks, not only preparing for their own season, but some have been involved in the first team squad’s progression to the last 16 of the Betfred Cup.
We are pleased to confirm several new signings. Firstly, we welcome Greg Houston, Jake Emmerson, Conor Dewar, Jordan Lamont, Jordan McKenzie and Jack Mathieson who take the total number of players making the step up from EFCFC under 19s side to 9. This is a brilliant achievement for all involved in East Fife Community Football Club.
Joining the other new faces are Jack Healy, Ali Wilkinson (both AM Soccer), Glen Marshall (Lochgelly Albert), Alex Marr (Edinburgh City), Craig Richardson and Jordan Elliot (both Kelty Hearts). Jordan has previously been at Swansea City and was involved in the SFA Performance Schools Programme.
Lastly, we welcome Scotland Schools Internationalist Josh McConville. Josh is the first player to join us from Fife Elite Football Academy and we’d like to thank Bill Hendry and the FEFA staff for their work in Josh’s development.
Whilst there may be further additions to the group, of the players signed only one is in his final year of Under 20s football and five players could be involved for up to three seasons. The squad has deliberately been designed this way to ensure players have both time to develop anda continuous pathway each season.
The development squad’s next game is against Glenrothes FC on Monday 5th August at Locality Hub Bayview Stadium with a 7.45pm kick off.
We have been drawn at home to Rangers in the last 16 of the Betfred Cup. The tie will take place on Sunday 18th of August at the Locality Hub Bayview Stadium with a 3 pm kick off.
Ticket arrangements for the match will be announced following discussions between the clubs.
Please do not contact the club office regarding tickets prior to an announcement being made.
Details of hospitality packages will be announced in due course.
Following the announcement that we will be running an under 20s side this year, we have some exciting news for young players in the area.
Firstly, we would like to welcome our first signings for the new squad, all of whom have featured in our recent preseason friendlies:
Jamie Allan, Nathan Laird, Adam Davidson, Jake Horsburgh, Rory Cosgrove and Charles Marr.
All six of these players are eligible to play at under 20 level for at least two years but their involvement with the first team squad so soon is a credit to both themselves and the work that has been carried out within East Fife Community Football Club over the past few years.
Following the success of East Fife COMMUNITY Football Club’s u19s team transitioning onto East Fife FC and securing a place in the U20s Lowlands League, we are now looking for players to form a new U19s team for the upcoming season.
For players who show passion and are willing to work hard, the pathway is in place with a link into both the amateur and professional game.
There will be an open session at Bayview Stadium on Saturday 6th July from 10am for players U19 and U17.
