The local club are without a league fixture this weekend, but will be hoping youngster Liam Hunt can make his international debut for England's under-19s

Trevor Tamatave insists Genesis will continue doing everything they can to produce talented young players for their country.

The University of East London-based club recently celebrated the news teenager Liam Hunt had been selected for England’s under-19 squad.

It gave Genesis a much-needed boost after an up-and-down campaign in the National Super League.

The young team sit bottom of the table and lost 13-1 at Salisbury United on Sunday and Tamatave admits it is about finding the right balance between developing youth and also getting good results.

He said: “It is all about getting young, English boys to develop and hopefully help them to play for the national team.

“We want to give them a pathway and with the young players we’ve had, we’ve got a good crop, but unfortunately we haven’t had the core senior guys to help them this season.

“Everyone at the club has put in a lot of effort and to get Liam in the under-19s squad shows we can develop young players, but at the same time we want to maintain a good standard in the league, so it is about getting the balance right.”

Genesis take a break from National Super League action this weekend and will return on March 11 when York City visit.
