Academy striker signs on for 1st XI

We have this week added 17 year old Jack Read to the 1st team squad. Jack is studying at Queens School in Watford, and has been prolific in front of goal for their Academy team, playing under the Chesham United name, in the Football Conference Youth Alliance. He has been playing for Chesham United Reserves and has already been scoring freely for us in the Spartan South Midlands League this season.

Andy Leese was keen to get Jack signed saying, "He has done really well with us in a short time, and Paul Burgess has given Jack the platform to perform in a tough League.

"He trains with the 1st team, and his attitude like all the boys we have from Queens is first class. He follows Lewis Rolfe and Max Farrelly as Queens boys making the grade with us, and I am sure he won't be the last."

Take a look at the Chesham United Academy pages for more details and a video along with the Football Conference Youth Alliance results and tables.
