Shildon U18’s selected for Durham County Under 18’s

7 Shildon AFC players have been selected to represent Durham County U18s this season.

It is great to see the players being recognised for their performances so far this season.  It is also important to recognise the quality of the rest of the squad as we know a few others are capable of making the squad and as the season goes on we hope they get the opportunity.

We are sure the players would be the first to thank the management team, lead by manager Bill Harper, for their hard work and guidance over the years.

The Players are: –
Harris Saunders
Euan Anderson
David Vincent
Ryan Beston
Joe Mole
Joe Spooner
Jordan Lee

We wish the players success whilst representing the County and we are sure they will represent Shildon AFC well on their travels around the country.

Congratulations Ryan Nelson

Congratulations to Ryan Nelson from the Shildon AFC under 18s team. He has signed a professional contract with Queen of the South today.

It not only shows how well he has been doing but also how well the rest of the team have been doing. I am sure he won’t be the last one making the step up. It is also a good example to the younger players at Shildon that anything is possible if you keep working hard.

Special mention to Billy Harper and the management team from U18s who work tirelessly to give as many opportunities as they can do to the boys.
