Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is behind the success at Dulwich Hamlet.

Striker Daniel Carr is wanted at Liverpool, defenders Quade Taylor and Michael Chambers have both joined Crystal Palace in recent years, while 17-year-striker Paul McCallum moved to West Ham in 2011.

Dulwich Hamlet boss Gavin Rose told talkSPORT: “We don’t have a big budget so we have to give young players a chance to play and we also have our own private academy supported by the Rio Ferdinand foundation.

“We get a good pool of players coming to us from the local estates with raw talent and players released from professional clubs and we’re becoming an attractive club to teenagers who want to become players and move on with their careers."
