17/06/21: One of Andy Peaks’ first tasks as his squad regrouped for pre-season training this week, was to sign youngster, Will Jones, on a contract.

Will was spotted by Andy Peaks at Academy trials aged just 14. He quickly became an integral part of the Academy as he progressed through the year groups with his excellent attitude and commitment. Will was part of last season’s (2020/21) very successful Under 18 squad that finished the season unbeaten in the Midland Junior Premier League and won the NSYL Jaymann Shield, scoring an impressive 29 goals in just 16 matches.

Andy commented “Will is a very exciting prospect who has attracted interest from many other Clubs so I’m delighted to be able to give him a contract. He has massive potential and came through our Academy before breaking into the first team squad last season where we saw flashes of that potential. He can concentrate on developing his game and with his excellent attitude and desire to be the very best he can be, I’m sure we’ll see more of what he is capable of this season.”

Will was part of the 2018/19 season’s all-conquering Academy U16s playing in a forward role, and he also played for the Academy U18s and Aspire teams. After playing in cup games for the first team he made his league debut as a substitute in the game at Kings Langley FC in December 2019.
