Help us find the 2010/11 Bracknell Town Youth Team

Back in 2010/11 Bracknell Town had a rather good youth side managed by Steve Jenner that reached the first round proper of the FA Youth Cup and went on win the Allied Counties Youth League South Division the following season.

We posted the following image on Facebook recently of the team that went down Torquay United for that FA Youth Cup match and we need your help to find out where the members of that team are now.

Tag anyone you recognise in the image:

Bracknell were unfortunately beaten 4-0 by a full time United youth team – the Gulls were beaten 6-0 in the following round though by Brighton & Hove Albion.

The squad that went to Torquay included: Adam Woodley, Matt Smith, Craig Locke, James Langham, Lewis Leonetti, Tom Barratt, Jamie Smith, Jamie Lawlor, Connor Banks, Charlie Lauri, Louis Wilson, Jake White, Matt Leigh, Kevin Asare-Addai, Joe Randall and Tom Brint.

Some of these are straight forward, but others we aren’t so sure about!

Charlie Lauri: Out of the game currently but coaching at Reading FC. Charlie told us he is hoping to get back to playing next season.

Louis Wilson: Was part of the title winning youth team in the 2011/12 season and was top scorer in the South Division. Made several appearances for the Bracknell first team before moving to Binfield for a season when he stopped playing due to work commitments.

Matt Leigh: Leigh has made six appearances for Hellenic Premier League side Henley Town this season scoring one goal.

James King: Came through and became a regular for the Bracknell Town first team under Ed Carpenter and Keith Pennicott-Bowen but is now playing Sunday League.

Jake White: Went on to captain Bracknell Town first team and is now at Binfield after a spell at Flackwell Heath.

Lewis Leonetti: Back at Binfield after starting the season with Thatcham Town.

Tom Barratt: Made over 100 appearances for Bracknell Town first team and is now back where he started at Woodley United.
