“I would like to announce that Kev Heaton will become our new Head of Youth for Sheppey United FC Youth Section as from 1st June 2024.

“We welcome all abilities of players at the club, we welcome families to be a big part of the club going forward, we want to have a culture of fun, football is for everyone and football is all about having some fun with other players and families.

“The club along with Kev will be putting a youth committee in place, Treasurer and Secretary – we will also have a secretary for the different leagues we play in. We are also looking to have youth football played on a Saturday and offer all levels of football across the weekend.”
