Conor Gallagher is a local boy who played mostly wide during his Under-16 season and as a central midfield player in his earlier schoolboy years.

He has a couple of brothers who have been scholars at other clubs so comes from a football family who are big Chelsea supporters. A development centre graduate, he has been training with Chelsea since the age of six and is a team player with a great attitude.

He made 31 appearances in his first season as a scholar, including two as a substitute in the Youth Cup, and made his development squad debut in March 2017. Among his five goals for the Under-18s, he crucially broke the deadlock in our title decicder against Reading, kicking off the Cobham celebrations.

Gallagher made his England Under-18 debut in a 4-0 win against Qatar in March 2018.

A late addition to the England Under-17 squad, he made his debut prior to the World Cup finals in October 2017 and returned with a winner's medal, featuring reguarly as a steadying influence in midfield in the latter stages of games, including the final. The midfielder continued to feature predominantly for our youth team throughout 2017/18, contributing to another unprecedented trophy haul, including playing in every game as the FA Youth Cup was retained once again. 

 In March 2017, Gallagher signed a first professional contract at the club that runs until the summer of 2019.
