After a successful season last year, we welcome back the academy, who will be looking to grow on the achievements of National Youth Alliance cup winners, SCL cup winners and SCL Southern League Champions.

With our former second year boys graduating, we now welcome a academy of just over 40 players led by Tony Burman with Deren Ibrahim, working alongside first team players, Ronnie Vint, Tom Bonner as well assistant manager Steve Mosely, and head of youth development Phil Murray.

Split into two sides of  under 18s and under 17s, Dartfords youth teams will be competing in the National League Conference Youth Alliance and the SCL Youth Development League as they continue with their education and football development.

We will keep you up-to date with their progress as the season develops.
