Enfield Borough chairman Marvin Walker believes his club can offer players a chance to rebuild their careers after losing out on contracts at professional clubs.

Carlito Montana was on the books of Watford and Bury before joining Borough, while Jordan Adebayo-Smith, who made his debut at Rayners Lane in the last match before the current lockdown, appeared for Lincoln City in the Checkatrade Trophy tie against Accrington Stanley in 2018.

“I think that Enfield Borough has gained a reputation of playing a good style of football and of promoting our young players in the hope of getting them a move into the higher echelons of the football pyramid and that has attracted these footballers to the club,” said Walker. “There can be a number of reasons why youth players do not get the professional contracts that they have dreamt of. Sometimes it can be down to the player’s immaturity, possibly the clubs do not have the budget to offer them terms or, as in the case of Carlito at Bury, it can be that circumstances beyond their control conspire against them.”
