The Club are extremely proud to announce that Joel Colbran has been selected for the Sussex Under 18 Representative squad to take on their Kent counterparts in the South East Counties Youth Championship.
Joel has played an extremely key role in the first team so far this season with 17 appearances already (16 starts) in the Magpies' defence and with that having contributed 3 assists.
He is the only member of the 23 strong squad to ply his trade regularly at a Southern Combination Football League club and he perfectly encapsulates the ethos that our Club has towards young players, in that we are not fearful of providing match experience at this level for those who have the technical proficiency to do so.
Joel became a regular member of this squad last season during Sussex's run to the final of the FA County Youth Cup, where they eventually lost 2-0 to Liverpool FA. He will now train with the rest of the squad in pursuit of a place in the final line-up that will face Kent at Sussex County FA HQ, Culver Road at 19:45 on Tuesday 18 October and conveniently Joel will be able to familiarise himself with the venue again in advance as he will part of the Magpies' squad that faces ground tenants Lancing FC there this Saturday.
All at the Club wish Joel all the very best and are sure that he will represent the County in the same positive manner in which he represents Loxwood.
