Saints Take In The Latest Academy Recruits
Monday, 4th Jul 2016 15:41
Southampton Football Club has handed two-year professional scholarships to 13 players as part of its latest intake to the Under-18s squad.
A large proportion of the players have come through the youth ranks at the club, but, significantly, they have been joined by many young talents from other teams who have opted to further their fledgling careers with Saints.
The new boys are: Harry Hamblin, Kieran Freeman, Jonathan Afolabi, Oliver Gardner, Harlem Hale, Harrison Davis, Michael Obafemi, Jamie Bradley-Green, William Smallbone, Jake Vokins, Adam Parkes, Alex Cull and Javen Siu.
So another new intake of youngsters at Saints, as usual it will be an exciting period in their lives, historically few will make the first team, but over the past fifty years Saints have had a great record of making sure that if the lads don't succeed at Saints that a fair proportion of them do forge careers elsewhere.
Good luck to this new breed, remember their names, some of them might be household names in a few years.
