Trevoh is the younger brother of Nathaniel Chalobah, another Academy graduate, and signed as an Under-9. He played predominantly in defence throughout his schoolboy years, mostly at right-back and centre-back but also occasionally in midfield. Captain of our Under-16 side in the 2014/15 season, he also wore the armband for England at the same age group as they won the Montaigu Tournament. He featured on 10 occasions for our youth team that year when still a schoolboy and made his Under-21 debut.

In 2015/16, Chalobah featured in every game en route to another FA Youth Cup final success and was a regular in our Under-19s team that retained their UEFA Youth League title. The following campaign saw him step up as a development squad regular, starting 25 of the 28 games at that age group. He also featured in all eight ties and scored semi-final and final goals as we won the Youth Cup for a fourth year running. 

A regular throughout the England age groups, he captained the Under-17s at the European Championship for that age group in 2016 before winning the Under-19 version of the tournament in 2017. The defender signed a first professional contract in June 2016, committing him to the club until the end of the 2018/19 season.
