MYFC Press Release – hot off the Presses, err Email.
Tom Phipp has re signed at Ebbsfleet United for another season.
Myfootballclub are delighted to announce that Ebbsfleet United have today re signed their exciting midfield player Tom Phipp for a further season.
Team Manager Liam Daish said “Tom Phipp graduated from local football and joined the Fleet’s PASE youth set-up. Tom first signed for the club in 2010 and has featured regularly in the squad ever since. He showed last season that he is prepared to work hard for the team and played on several occasions out of position when injury hit other team members. I am delighted that he is back with us.”
Ebbsfleet United Chairman Jessica McQueen said “It is good news that Tom has once again chosen to sign for Ebbsfleet United FC. His dedication and commitment to the club is very much appreciated by us all.”
MyFootballclub Vice Chairman Andy Coleman commented ” It’s fantastic to see a young player with such promise stay with The Fleet for another year. Fans have enjoyed watching Tom’s progress from The Fleets Youth Team to First Team Regular, I hope another 12 months at Stonebridge road will see many more great performances from Tom. Our joint fundraising effort with The Fleet Trust to boost the playing budget continues at http://www.fleetsos.co.uk/ “

An exciting attacking midfield prospect, Tom Phipp graduated from local football and attracted the attentions of Arsenal where he spent five years in the youth ranks. At U18 level, he won and scored in the FA County Youth Cup Final with Kent in 2010, having finished as a losing finalist in 2009. Having joined the Fleet’s PASE youth set-up, Tom signed a first-team contract in the summer of 2010. Although touted as one for the future, nobody quite expected the impact he made in Fleet’s 2010-11 promotion season as he quickly established himself as first-choice in midfield, going on to play almost 50 times in his debut season and scoring 12 goals, including two spectacular long-range strikes in quick succession against Dorchester. A tireless runner and hard worker, the Blue Square Premier Division could be just the stage for one of the Fleet’s young guns to shine this season.
