First-team boss offers encouragement to quartet
Neal Ardley today said that a quartet of young Dons are in the right place to flourish after they were offered professional contracts for next season.
Will Nightingale (pictured centre in the above photograph with Neal Ardley and Academy Manager Jeremy Sauer) today signed on the dotted line to complete a rise through the AFC Wimbledon ranks that began when he was just nine years of age.
As we announced earlier, George Oakley, Tom Beere and Chase Jacquart are also committed to pro deals and Neal Ardley believes that all four can progress under the guidance of Under-21s coach Shaun North.
“The four boys have shown potential for this club,” said Neal. “The key word here though is ‘potential’ and we’re very hopeful that they will progress again next season under the excellent stewardship of Shaun North. We genuinely believe that they have a great chance of getting into the first-team. Whether they do that though is down to them and their desire to improve.”
