It is with great pride and evidence of the continued youth development of players within the club that Dexters are able to announce the signing of two of their U9 players to Premier League academies. So firstly, congratulations go to Harley Simpson who has signed a one year contract to AFC Bournemouth. Harley has been at the club since the age of 5 where his potential was already evident at that young age. A hard working player with boundless energy, he and his teammates have developed fantastically under the coaching of his father Luke Simpson.

Secondly, congratulations go out to Harry Coole who will be starting out on a 3 year contract with the Southampton FC academy. Harry has only been at the club for a year having only entered youth football at that point. With that in mind, his development over such a short period of time has been truly incredible and his aptitude as a goalkeeper continues to grow and grow.

The club would like to wish both boys all the best for their future footballing journeys and are committed to youth development to increase the number of similar opportunities for players within the club.
