Five Academy Lads Handed Contract

Five Academy Lads Handed Contract

Aldershot have handed five home grown Academy graduates two year scholarship deals at the club.

Defenders Joe Gater, Aiden O'Kelly, midfielders Charlie Kennedy, Jack French and striker Harry Anderson have all committed to the club despite having interest elsewhere.

Academy manager Drew Sherman said to the Official Site following the announcement.

'I've worked closely with the five boys for the past two seasons, and they've pushed themselves on a daily basis to obtain this offer. It's a fantastic achievement and rightly they are very proud, however this is just the beginning of the hard work. They know that as a Club we endeavor as always to provide the development pathway they need, the key question now is - how badly do they want to take the opportunity they have in front of them?'
