Ben Beard is the latest player to commit to the 2023/24 season.

Ben Beard, 20, made his Ites debut during the 2022/23 season – a cup game versus Kennington featuring as left back. However, last season Ben would kick-on and make a further 12 appearances.

As well as a man of the match performance v Hertford Town, Ben stepped up in a holding midfield role when captain Richie Hamill was injured, and those two performances v East Grinstead and Sevenoaks saw the Ites win both games following defeats in the previous two games.

Ben was also a key performer in the U23s SCEFL Development league title win last season.

Ben said “I’m glad to back for the new season. I got a good taste of Isthmian football last season and but for injuries I may have had a few more appearances under my belt too.

“Coming off the back of a successful U23s season during the last campaign too, I’m now looking forward to kicking on, adding more 1st team games and playing in front of the great supporters we have at the club.”

Ben will continue to wear shirt number 19.
