Fancy playing for us? Trials on May 16
Trials for the under-21s and first team will take place at East Grinstead Sports Club on Tuesday, May 16 from 7-9pm
The club are looking to add to our excellent crop young players at the club in the first team and under-21s so if you are aged 16-24 and think you have what it takes to play at Ryman League level then email your name, age, contact number, preferred position and previous clubs.
Our current first team has 12 teenagers in a 17-man squad and a number of our players have come through professional football at either scholarship or pro level and understand the importance of game time in senior football to gain the relevant experience and skills to move back up the ladder.
We would like to open the opportunity to join a club with a strong ethos and one that gives young players a chance.
If the above appeals to you don't hesitate to email your details and we will contact you to confirm your place at the trial.

Marcus Elliott picks up three end of season awards
Marcus Elliott picked up three honours at the end of season awards held on Saturday in the clubhouse.
Marcus, who finished the season top scorer with 24 league and cup goals, took the Player of the Year, Leading Goalscorer and Players’ Player accolades, with manager Matt Longhurst revealing that he had agreed to stay with the club for next season, which is a great boost to our plans for our fourth season in the Ryman League.
Matt’s manager’s award went to Will Thomas, who finished the season as captain.
Grant Hearn’s Under-21 team awards went to George Wallis (Manager’s Player), Billy Wraight (Player’s player) and Leading scorer Carlos Anderson.
The Club Man of the Year was presented to Ray Galloway, who has been associated with the Wasps for more than 30 years.
