"We have been really impressed with the boys resilience in the face of COVID-19 restrictions this year and as a group they have demonstrated a togetherness which has engineered success both on and off the pitch, and helped us get through some challenging times.

"Well done to all of the children who have signed for the U's. We hope you enjoy the experience and can create some lifelong memories!"
