New first team announced
We are glad to welcome AFC Orpington back to the club as our new First team, who recently took part in the Sevenoaks and District League. The squad was a combination of players originally from Orpington Football Club and other local teams. Having two successful seasons with promotions, winning and losing in two cup finals, the decision was made to try and push the team further. At the start of the 2019/20 season Aaron McFerran was brought into to manage the side and bring a professional structure to the team. It also led to the inclusion of new players bringing much needed further quality and experience into the side.
Having had a very disjointed season with the coronavirus pandemic, the team came together to discuss the ambition for the future. The squad, now consisting of a young core, needed to push itself further. Having already had links with Orpington Football Club, and in discussion with Simon Morris, the decision was made to transfer and join the Club to fulfil its ambitions. With the prospect of greater support, better playing conditions, and a pool of young, fantastic talent coming through from the under 18 age groups, the decision was simple.
The future for the team now looks bright!
