Youth springs eternal

Today Marianne and I are in Leuchars about to start our first day of what will be an 80 mile or so hike around some three quarters of the Fife Coast Path (clockwise). So much walking, so much time to be thinking about Charlton!

My interest in youth football has led me to follow Charlton under 21’s on live stream games and the under 18’s whenever any of their games (usually in the FA Youth Cup) are on Charlton TV. That is another service which may go if the new SKY Sports deal ends up being the end of Charlton TV!
Many players at under 18 level move up to play for the under 21’s and then the first team.
As far as I know the following ‘one of our own’ players at Charlton are in the squads shown:

First team:

Miles Leaburn
Ashley Maynard-Brewer (GK)
Karoy Anderson
Tyreece Campbell
Daniel Kanu
Lucas Ness
Zach Mitchell (on loan)
Deji Elewere
Richard Chin
Nathan Asimwe
Aaron Henry (on loan)

Under 21’s

Most of the above
Henry Molyneux (GK)
Prince Adegoke (GK)
Nazir Bakrin *
Toby Bower
Matt Dench *
Ollie Hobden
Jacob Roddy (on loan) *
Seydil Toure (on loan)
Jason Adigun
Ralfi Hand
Ryan Huke
Harvey Kedwell (on loan) *
Jeremy Santos (on loan)
Euan Williams *
Henry Rylah *
Patrick Casey *
Tolu Ladapo (on loan) *
Chibike Okelhukwa
Ryan Viggars *
Josh Lageretubua *

* has made first team debut

Under 18’s

James Batt (GK)
Jude Sadler (GK)
Harmony Okwimo
Ethan Brown
Mason Hunter
David Danso
Luke Ashburn
Keenan Gough
Jacob Safa
Ibrahim Fullah
Kai Enslin
Micah Mbick *
Brook Myers
Jadon Yamoah
Ethan Cann
Joshua Ogunnowo
Alan Mwamba
Manu Wales
Mikey Berry
Woodman (GK)

Will be interesting to look back in years to come to see how many of these players make it at Charlton or move on to careers at other clubs.
