Jacob Mensah Completes Transfer To Crystal Palace
Ramsgate Football Club can confirm Jacob Mensah has signed for Crystal Palace u23’s following a successful trial with the Premier League side.
Jacob initially completed a short trial at Brighton & Hove Albion in February before Palace made an offer for his signature.
Jacob, 18, has made over 60 appearances for the senior team in his Ramsgate career after completing the pathway through our well established and successful Academy run by both Phil and Tom.
Manager Nick Davis has personally congratulated Jacob on his move as he feels Jacob has the opportunity to make the grade within the professional game, and thanks him for his time at Ramsgate FC.
Director & CEO Mr Paul Bowden-Brown confirms that although there was no financial gain for the club, a pre-season game against a strong u/23s has been arranged, and it will give the supporters a chance to see this young man playing in the colours of his new club; Crystal Palace.
Paul wishes Jacob the very best with his new challenge at Crystal Palace, and is sure he is looking forward to meeting up with his new teammates; Paul finished by saying what a great advert for Non-League Football, and Ramsgate Football Club. With its robust youth set up, it gives inspiration to any other young footballers that wish to follow in Jacob's footsteps to come and join us Ramsgate Football Club. We are running Academy trials at the club for 16-18-year-olds on the 17th April: all details will be on the clubs website next week and across our social media channels.
