PLAYER PATHWAY REAPS REWARDS

Sunday evening was a watershed moment for the Academy as we welcomed goalkeeper Niklas Karbaum to the Senior Squad.

Niklas has been training with the U17 Academy and made his debut in a 9-1 win, keeping a clean sheet in his 70 mins on the pitch.

Niklas is the first of our Academy players to make the step up to the Senior squad, and we hope that over the coming months and years we see many more take the leap and figures in matchday squads and get minutes on the pitch to aid their development.

Niklas is proof that when you put in the hard work, carry yourself well in training, and have a desire to improve that good things will come. Congratulations Niklas, I'm sure your family is as proud as we are.
