Levi ColwillEngland U17s
DATE OF BIRTH26 February 2003
Levi Colwill has been registered with us since the Under-9 age group after signing through our development centre programme.
An England Under-17 international who plays mostly at centre-back, he can also slot in on the left as full-back or wing-back, and enjoys stepping forward as a ball-playing defender.
Colwill featured mostly for the Under-18s during 2019/20 and made his Under-19 debut in the UEFA Youth League draw with Valencia in September as well as appearing in the FA Youth Cup for the first time during the 5-0 win over Bradford City. Impressive performances saw the defender begin to make appearances for the development squad in early 2020, the first coming in a 2-2 draw with Everton, but unfortunately his season ended early after picking up a knee injury in the Youth Cup win over Millwall at Stamford Bridge, in total he made 23 outings for the Blues. A solid first season in full-time football meant he signed his first professional contract at the club on his 17th birthday in February 2020 which runs until 2023.
