East Grinstead Town are delighted to confirm the appointment of Harry Martin and Ean Paterson as joint managers of our reformed under-23 team.

The side will compete in the Isthmian League U-23 League next season and first-team manager Leigh Dynan wants it to act as a feeder to the first team.

Dynan said: “I know both Harry and Ean from my time as Whyteleafe manager when they ran the under-23s. We have a good youth system at the club from under-15s upwards and it’s important that the best players are encouraged, improve and have the chance to get into the first-team squad. The football they will play at is a good standard and this is a development which is only going to benefit the whole club.

Harry said: “Myself and Ean are absolutely delighted to join East Grinstead and we can’t wait to get started. We are really looking forward to putting our squad together, getting out on the training pitch, developing the team and meeting some of the supporters.

From the conversations I’ve had with Leigh and [assistant manager] Danny Masters over the past week I have got a really good feeling about where they want the club to go and how they want it to grow by bringing through young talent. East Grinstead are a well-run club with a good reputation, and we can’t wait to be part of it.”
