Dean Inman tours with the Middlesex Wanderers
Kingstonian centre back travelled as part of the famous Middlesex Wanderers on a quick tour of Jersey.
Ks' centre back Dean Inman had a good ending to his 2018-19 season when he was selected to play for the Middlesex Wanderers in their recent tour of Jersey last month. The Wanderers played in the inaugural Jackson International Trophy alongside the hosts from Jersey, plus amateur representative sides from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
In the first match upon their arrival on the Thursday 23rd May against the hosts Jersey at the National Stadium, Middlesex Wanderers recovered from a goal down to secure a draw courtesy of a Rob Laney (Wingate and Finchley) strike.
On Saturday 25th May the Wanderers took on a Republic of Ireland side that had beaten the England C team recently. Again the team had to reduce the arrears thanks to a quality strike from D'Sean Theobalds (Tonbridge Angels). Unfortunately The Irish team snatched victory late on to secure the 3 points. In what was a grueling schedule Wanderers played their third match in 4 days and again Theobalds managed to give the tourists the lead with a penalty after Mike Jones of Hungerford Town had been brought down. Dernell Wynter (Potters Bar) doubled the lead only for Northern Ireland to strike back. However the Wanderers held on for victory to finish behind the Republic Ireland in this inaugural Trophy.
Steve Ward from the Middlesex Wanderers said: "I was pleased Dean was able to tour as he was someone we were keen to get having been watched this season. It gave us that much needed experience in a team that is quickly put together on the pitch.. Over the matches Dean stood out and represented himself and Kingstonian FC in a very positive way. Dean helped our less experienced players and stood out in a team that defended well against international teams that had been on training camps prior to the tournament. I’m glad he got to experience tournament football and had some pressure free football on a beautiful island whilst becoming a Middlesex Wanderer. It was also good to have a player from a club that we have traditionally had a good relationship with in the past."
