We are delighted to announce that our Advanced Academy (Canterbury) U12 player Raif has secured a 2 week trial with Gillingham FC (League 1 Club) starting this week.


Raif has impressed Gillingham FC’s Head of Recruitment over the last few weeks with his stand out performances.

Words from Director Josh Algar:


“Raif is a fantastic player who has been with our Advanced Academy since U9. Over the last three seasons Raif has progressed going from strength to strength, especially in our pro fixtures we have had which has been noticed by the opposition. We are delighted he has now earned an opportunity to showcase his ability to a professional club and we know he will take this opportunity with both hands”.


This is a fantastic opportunity and well deserved. Good luck Raif!
