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.
A strong keeper and good shot-stopper, he is always hard to beat and has a fantastic work ethic and attitude to continually develop his game. He made 12 appearances during his maiden season in the Under-18s, making his FA Youth Cup debut - and a clean sheet - in our semi-final second leg win over Birmingham City.
The Zagreb-born teenager signed a first professional contract at the club in July 2018, a three-year deal that expires at the end of 2020/21.
In January 2019 Ziger joined Sutton United, in the National League, on loan for the remainder of the season.
