Reggie’s had a lot of setbacks on the way but he’s stayed so resilient and focused, he really does deserve it.”
“He’s obviously had some exposure in men’s football with us at Sevenoaks Town which I think has helped his development and showed he can cope with the physical presence and challenges you face at Non-League.”
