FA Youth Cup reaction: Marcel Lewis reflects on Bradford victory
Chelsea Under-18s sailed into the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup after a convincing 5-0 win over Bradford at Aldershot last night.
A good one-v-one defender who likes to tackle, he is equally comfortable on the right or centre of defence, and made his youth team debut on the opening day of the 2017/18 campaign. The England Under-17 international went on to make 25 appearances for the Under-18s as they completed a clean sweep of four trophies.
In 2018/19, Lavinier played most of his football with Andy Myers's youth team before making his development squad debut in January away at Everton, the eventual PL2 champions. He signed a first professional contract at the club in July 2018, a two-year deal that expires at the end of 2019/20.
