UYL reaction: Edwards praises mature display and three quality goals
A place in the last-16 was the reward for a measured performance from our Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League as they triumphed 3-1 over AS Monaco in the play-off round.
He has a fantastic attitude and maturity, which he uses to excel both academically and on the pitch, and was involved as an unused substitute for the youth team while still a schoolboy. He can play anywhere across the back three or either side of the centre-back pairing, and it was in the latter position which he made his Under-18s debut on the opening day of the 2017/18 campaign.
In October 2017, he signed a first professional contract at the club until the summer of 2020.
