The Cobras are delighted to announce that under 21’s goalkeeper Charlie Dando will be part of the first team squad this season.
Dando, who was the first choice goalkeeper in Clipstone’s U21 set up last season, has been part of the first team in pre-season and the Cobras Boss Micky Taylor said: “Charlie is a very good young goalkeeper.”
“Steve Smith, our under 21’s manager, speaks very highly of him. He’s going to have to understand the harsher side of football, because mentally, as a goalkeeper, it is never easy. It’s tough and everybody beats themselves up about their own performance, he will have no better team mate and mentor than Gav.”
“He’s thoroughly deserved his chance, and I’m looking forward to watching him develop further over the next few years.”
