News > New U21 Squad Announced
Penistone Church FC are pleased to announce that an U21 squad will be formed and will be competing next season in the Worksop Van Hire North Midlands Development Football League North Division
The U21 squad will be headed by Oliver Harris. Oliver currently works at Barnsley FC in the Development Centre and also on the Shadow Scholarship program with Reds in the Community. Oliver has also coached one of our Junior teams at Penistone, coaching the new U17 squad for the last 2 seasons.
The club hopes to bridge the gap between junior football and open age. Players are dropping out of football or not reaching there top potential. Long-term the structure of this Under 21 squad will provide pathways in to our 3 open age teams (Penistone Church FC, AFC Penistone & Penistone Church Development Team) therefore allowing players to gain some valuable experience. Keep an eye over the next few days for opportunities to get involved with the U21 squad as either a coach or player.
