Maidstone United U16’s player Bivesh Gurung will take up a scholarship with Premiere League club Crystal Palace. Gurung who comes from Maidstone in Kent was offered the terms by the Eagles after a series of trials spanning five months. This is an amazing news for Bivesh and his family!
The young footballer has been with Maidstone United for the past 18 months. On the Stones’ official website he shared “I honestly can’t thank MUFC enough for the experience and opportunities they have provided for me, helping me secure my place at a professional club. Biggest thanks to Steve and Bob (team managers) who have worked very hard with me through this time and helped me strengthen my playing ability. Lastly, thank you to my team mates – who are also my good friends off the pitch – for all that they do and for making MUFC a truly fantastic experience. My time here was an unforgettable one”.
The midfielder is set to start his full time scholarship with Crystal Palace from July! Great going! Wishing him all the best here!
