The Club is pleased to announce that its young defender Jamie Fielding has today signed for Stevenage.
This is positive news for the Club and shows its academy development programme is working. Jamie was not on contract with the Club so the Club has only benefited by way of the positive publicity it will gain by seeing one of its young players join the pro ranks. All at the Club wish Jamie well in his pro career.
Jamie was coached by the Club’s manager Chris Agutter from the age of 13 firstly in Eastbourne Borough’s academy and then in the Hastings United/East Sussex College Hastings education scheme. Jamie found his way from the education scheme side into the Club’s development squad and then in this past season into the first team squad where he soon became a regular and vital first team player.
The Club hopes that Jamie’s success acts as a beacon to all young players within the Club in terms of them setting a goal of graduating to the pro game.
