MIDSON SECURES YOUNG TALENT

Club News

Sheppey United are delighted to confirm the signings of U23s players Callum Hudson, Teddy McIntyre and Ben Beard.

Defender Hudson featured for the Ites in a few first team friendlies during pre-season and the tall left footed centreback can also operate at fullback. Before linking with our U23s Hudson featured at Sevenoaks Town.

Midfielder Teddy McIntyre originally joined our U18s setup but quickly progressed into the U23s during the pre-season but eye catching displays soon saw him train regularly with the first team. Comfortable with both feet McIntyre can operate in more than one midfield role and has already scored a few goals for the U23s. Teddy is also part of the Dartford FC scholars.

Ben Beard made his Senior debut for the Ites last season in the SCEFL Challenge Cup away at Kennington playing left-back and part of a winning side that kept a clean sheet. Although Ben has also featured during pre-season for the 1st team at left-back his strongest position is as a holding midfielder where he plays regularly for the U23s. Ben is the son of U23s coach and former West Ham, Dover, Margate and Sittingbourne player Simon Beard and was at Dover Athletic himself before joining our U23s.

Speaking about the three signings Jack Midson said, “It’s been my intention and my vision for the future to do this and after a busy few weeks I’m glad to get these lads on board.

“Securing the signatures of the future local stars of Sheppey United was a key part of our vision and also helps stop other clubs from snapping them up.

“It’s a great tribute to Ross Wiles and his coaching team that we continue to see talent coming through and I’m looking forward to helping these lads develop further.

“Ross has a great set-up and I’m sure we’ll see other players coming through in the future too.

“We are also working hard to recruit experienced players at Isthmian level and above –  within our budget and talks are progressing. When we have further news our Ites fans will be first to see it across our media platforms.”
