Ryan Sharman is set to make his first start for Soham when they host Tilbury in the Ryman League, Division One North at Julius Martin Lane tonight.

The 18-year-old midfielder has arrived at the club from Calor League side St Neots, where he broke into their first team last term and captained the youth team.

Sharman came off the bench in the final quarter of an hour of Saturday’s 5-1 win over Chatham, and he is ready to start this evening as cover for the unavailable Joey Abbs.

“He came on and did well,” said Soham boss Steve Fallon, who has also regained the services of attacker Richard Gammon from Haverhill Rovers.

“I’m not too bothered about age, but if you can get a good young one then hopefully you’ll get a few years out of them.

“We’re not looking for journeymen. We want people to be coming here because they want to play and want to be part of our club, so hopefully this can be a stepping stone for him.

“We’ve got some good youngsters who are showing they’re good enough, and that’s all you can ask for.”

Soham go into the contest sitting two places and four points above 13th-placed Tilbury.
