16-year-old Josh Harris made an immediate impact on his Wokingham & Emmbrook debut, scoring in the 4-2 win over Didcot Town Reserves in February. Now he’s been nominated for an EPC Bracknell Football Award.
Dan Bateman, the Wokingham & Emmbrook manager was full of praise in that weeks issue of the Wokingham News. He said: “I have been receiving rave reviews about young Josh and this was a perfect opportunity to play him as I knew Didcot would also come with a load of young lads.
“We need to protect him a bit, but he has bags of talent, his energy levels were good and he got a goal, so it was a very pleasing debut for him.”
Harris went on to make four appearances for the Sumas first team following his debut in February and scored one goal. He played 10 times for Wokingham’s reserve team in the Thames Valley Premier League scoring four times.
Amongst the nominations received, one said: “16 year old broke into the Wokingham & Emmbrook first team and has been playing superbly this season.”
