Armando Broja is an attacking player who signed for our Academy at the end of his Under-9 season.

He has always played as an attacker, sometimes wide but mostly centrally, and scored many goals throughout his schoolboy years. He has played for Albania at the Under-16 age group but is also eligible for England. He signed his scholarship deal in July 2018.

Broja shared striker responsibilites with George Nunn throughout his maiden season as a scholar, making 23 appearances and scoring twice. He ended the campaign with a call-up to the Albania Under-21s and a brace on his debut.

Two months after his 18th birthday Broja notched a hat-trick on his maiden FA Youth Cup bow in a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Kingsmeadow - that was followed by the forward scoring during his first start for the development squad in a single goal victory over Tottenham. A reward for an excellent start to the season, Broja signed a two-and-a-half year deal to keep him at the club until June 2022.
