ACADEMY | Three new scholars confirmed for 2020/21 season
Newport County AFC are delighted to announce that three new first-year scholars have signed deals with the club.
Dixon Kabongo, Jack Karadogan and Charlie Bullock have all put pen-to-paper on deals for the 2020/21 season.
They will join up with the Exiles for the new campaign under the guidance of Academy Manager Damien Broad.
The scholars will be based with our training and education Partners, Lliswerry High School, where they will study for two years in partnership with League Football Education.
Acadmey Manager Broad said: “With the addition of these three players, it’s great to finally complete the recruitment of this year’s scholarship intake.
“As part of our recruitment strategy we started bringing in trialists last October alongside our under-16 squad to ensure we were able to look at as many players throughout the season.
“The Covid-19 lockdown had an impact on this but from then until now we have had in over 65 players from not only neighbouring EFL clubs but also welsh league and from the grassroots game. We did this to ensure we sought and identified the best local talent available to us from a range of different levels of the game.
“It is our constant aim for the Academy to unearth and produce the next Lewis Collins or Regan Poole.
“It’s been a very long and thorough proccess to ensure we looked and assessed as many players as possible over this time frame and we, as an Academy, are very pleased with the calibre of this intake.
“We have also managed to register a number of talented individuals onto our elite education programme at Lliswerry High school. This additional pool of players shadow everything the scholars do on a day to day basis, with the hope that some go on to gain scholarships in later years.
“The opportunity is now there for the lads and it is up to them to make the most of these next two years. If they all continue to work hard on and off the pitch, we are confident that they will be able to achieve their potential.”Newport County AFC are delighted to announce that three new first-year scholars have signed deals with the club. ]]>
