Scholars in 10 goal thriller!

Our Scholars kicked off their pre season campaign with a 5-5 draw away to National South side Maidstone Utd.

Charlie Larter last seasons top scorer, picked up where he left off managing to score a first half hat-trick.

Josh Dungate, also scored on his return from a long injury.

The final goal came from a trialist.

Academy coach Duncan Ibbotson said 'We are delighted to see Charlie continue his fine form from last season. Charlie has attracted a lot of interest from local clubs, and rightly so, he is a real talent. Charlie will be playing for Lingfield first team this pre season, which will be another great learning experience for him on his footballing journey.'

'We are also over the moon to see Josh back in action. Josh has worked really hard through our isolation sessions, so its great to see his hard work paying off- we will be expecting big things not just from these two lads this season, but from the squad as a whole.'

The Academy's next fixture will be against Whitstable Town.
