We’re excited to announce today that ex Ashford United FC first team coach Shaun Holland will be returning to Homelands Stadium next season to head the Under 23s development side which will be reforming for the 2019/2020 campaign.

Shaun, who originally joined United on 17th August 2015 to become first team coach under the management of Danny Lye, went on the help Ashford United win the SCEFL Premier Division title and Kent Senior Trophy cup double in the 2016/2017 season.

Along with the help of first team management Tommy Warrilow and Alex O’Brien, as well as the Ashford United Head of Youth Development, Kyle Galea, Shaun will be working on players’ progress path from the Under 18s into the Under 23s, where they will development to help give them an opportunity towards playing men’s football, hopefully for our first team in the future.

Shaun will remain in his current role as Assistant Manager at Kings Hill FC until the remainder of their season, but will currently be looking at bringing in players ready to start for next season in his new Under 23s squad.

Trial dates for the Under 23s Development Side will be announced later on in the season, but any players wishing to register their interest can email development@ashfordunitedfc.com.
