Second Team Confirmed!

(June 19, 2022)

Sidley United are delighted to announce that we will be running a second side which will play in Division Two of the East Sussex Football League for the upcoming season. The side will be led by Ash Carey and Darrell Shaw as joint managers.

Ash Carey has experience of the ESFL through spells as a player at clubs including Bexhill A.A.C, Ninfield United and Little Common and he played last season for Sidley United in the ESFL. On being appointed Carey said "I am looking forward to starting out in management alongside Darrell, who I know well. I am confident we will work well as a team and that we can work closely with Arron and Mark (the first team managers) to continue to bring success to this great club".

Darrell Shaw returns to the club, although this time as a manager, having begun his playing career with the Blues as a youngster when chairman Dickie Day was manager. Darrell also played for Little Common under current joint first team manager Mark Linch as well as a spell at Bexhill United. As a manager he has led The J.C Tackleway and Bexhill A.A.C Reserves in recent years. Shaw said "I feel like I'm coming back to where it all started for me all those years ago. Together with Ash we will aim to push the side closer to the first team. It might take us a little bit of time but this is what we want to achieve".

We look forward to working with them and wish them well for the coming season. If you are interested in joining the club as a player, getting involved behind the scenes or sponsoring the club, please get in touch.
