We are delighted to announce that our Advanced Academy (Canterbury) U12 player Raif has secured a 2 year contract with Gillingham FC (League 1 Club) for the 2021/2022 season.
Raif has impressed Gillingham FC’s coaching staff over the past 6-8 weeks of his trial, earning himself a well deserved contract.
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 so pleased he has now earned an opportunity to be with a professional club for the next 2 seasons, which all our coaching staff know he will excel and really develop. We are excited to see Raif’s progression over these 2 seasons”.
