Tilbury U13s are a fairly new side and will be entering into the EJA for the 2020/2021 campaign. Led by manager Danny Sykes the side will enter into only their 2nd season at Tilbury FC.
The 2019/2020 season was a very successful campaign for many reasons. It was decided early on that we are were going to push the squad to the maximum of their abilities and play a year up against under 13 opposition. The season was a tough one physically however the squad stood up to the challenge extremely well. They lost only 4 league games all season and took maximum points in 10 of their games. The season was unfortunately cut short because of COVID-19 and this unfortunately stopped them from adding to their total.
The campaign was seen as a total success and hopefully they can push on this year against some top opposition.
Danny Sykes is our Tilbury U13s manager for the 2020/21 season. He brings a vast amount of experience to the club having been involved in coaching for a number of years now.
This will be Danny's 2nd season as Tilbury manager after last seasons successful attempt at playing a year up. His side only lost 4 games all year and he will be hoping that the experience of playing 11 a side early will help push his side onto good things in the coming EJA season.
We are always on the look out for new players and only looking for a very small number.
The boys have started more pre-season training this week with apd sport and will continue with a minimum 6 weeks when we return.
We made 2 acquisitions from the premier and A division respectively. These two players will certainly help us move forward I to EJA football
