MILLWALL have signed Maidstone United youngster Alfie Pavey on a two-year academy scholarship after he scored an incredible 124 goals last season.

Pavey, who briefly trained with the Lions earlier this year, fired the Stones' U18s side to the Conference Youth Alliance title and was handed his first team debut in the Isthmian League Cup during a prolific campaign.

The 17-year-old is expected to link up with Millwall's development squad under the guidance of Scott Fitzgerald, who recently saw prized asset Conor Wilkinson agree a move to Bolton.



Maidstone's academy boss Jack Parkinson said: "A massive congratulations goes to Alfie on his two-year scholarship at Millwall.

"Alfie has been with me for three years and has scored over 300 goals, including 124 last season. His attitude and leadership has been different class in the time we have had him.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for him and while we at Maidstone are sad to see him go, he has got a fantastic future ahead of him.

"On a personal note Alfie has been a fantastic help to me and the team and will still be a huge part of what we do. We all at Maidstone wish a genuinely nice lad and a top player all the very best with his exciting future."

    Type of player we should be looking at and have missed out on in recent years. Let's hope our coaches can develop him into a first team player. He could be the new Neil Harris

    Best part is he sounds like a leader and a team player, unlike the wretch who buggered off to Bolton. Good luck Alfie, welcome to Millwall.

    I'm glad to hear that Millwall are out and about watching the regional leagues. I just hope that if the lad is as talented as he seems to be, that he gets some first team football within a couple of years.

    Well done Millwall, you have surprised me with this, maybe you should start looking at some of the Dulwich Hamlet players.

    I'd settle for signing someone for the first team that could score 12 goals in a season - let alone 127!

    Cascarino started off playing in the Kent leagues, Crockenhill I think.
    Congratulations to Alfie and to Millwall. Let's see some more.

    Good to have a young starlet on the books but lets be honest, if he lives up to expectations we will get one good year out of him before he is poached. In two years he will be 19 and only then might he be up for the challenge of adult first team football.

    Great news and lets hope this isn't just gonna be another Wilkinson scenario: pole resources into his development only for him to fly the nest before he has had a taste of first team football or the fans have had an opportunity to see the wonders we are promised.

    When I was down playing with the Stones alongside Chris Smalling (smallsy) (and not because of the shower 😉 ) there was a guy down there then who scored 243 goals in a season, and never got a chance, now when im nipping down the shop to get me south London press I see him on the dole.
    Sad really considering he was a goal machine and now his a dole machine.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
