The Seasiders have entered an Under 13 side into the Eastern Junior Alliance for season 2014/15. Coached By Under 13 Saturday Reds manager Martin Smedley they commenced their fixtures on Sunday September 7th with a home game against Woodbridge Town. 

A Big thank you to our shirt sponsor CGL and in particular Matt Hope for his continued support of the Seasiders. 

Martin originally signed for Ipswich Town as a 13 year old and came to this part of the country as a 16 year old with the Youth team set up; he was released at 19 and had a brief spell at Dundee. Martin has played for several Thurlow Nunn League clubs including Felixstowe & Walton United.

As a youngster Martin reached the last 50 of the England School Boys trials playing with some well-known players in the same group such as Ryan Giggs, Sol Campbell and Nick Barmby to name but three.

Martin now concentrates his time on helping his son and the other boys at the club through his coaching skills.
