RAMSGATE chairman Paul Bowden-Brown has cut his playing budget in recent weeks and is looking to bring in much younger players to help retain their Isthmian League South East Division status.

The Rams are sitting second-from-bottom in the table with eight points from 12 games and suffered a 4-2 defeat at Ashford United on Tuesday night.

Tommy Warrilow’s side raced into a 3-0 lead inside the opening 33 minutes but two goals from Kane Rowland during the second half ensured made the scoreline more respectable because Ramsgate were off the pace, especially in midfield, during a poor first-half performance.

“Following discussions between the coaching staff, ownership and senior management team it has been decided that, as part of our progressive future development, Ramsgate Football Club are earnestly seeking young passionate players who feel they have the qualities necessary to play at the level of Step Four of the National Leagues System,” Bowden-Brown said in a statement, which was posted on the clubs website.

“We, as a club, are continually mindful of the necessity to work to the future and are looking for players who can work successfully with our highly experienced coaching team with the aim of, not only the progression of the club but also the development of the players themselves.

“We have a system to join our own existing under 23’s/18s on the pathway to playing in the first team and beyond.

“If you feel you have the right attributes and have the passion to be part of a club that in the future wants to be proud of producing young, exciting, talented footballers capable of representing our first team and beyond, please make contact with our general manager Ian Docker – ian.docker@ramsgate-fc.co.uk.”

Ramsgate welcome tenth-placed side Phoenix Sports to Southwood Stadium on Saturday, 30 November 2019 (15:00) and are only three points clear of the relegation zone, which sees East Grinstead Town trapped inside and smarting from a 12-3 defeat at Hastings United in the Velocity Trophy, where Davide Rodari helped himself to eight goals against the beleaguered Wasps.
