Xavier Simons joined us in 2016 from Brentford after the Bees made the decision to close their academy programme.
A vocal and tough-tackling midfielder, he captained our Under-16s to Premier League Cup glory last season and made two appearances for the youth team. A regular in Ed Brand's Under-18s this term, Simons is also an England Under-17 international - he marked his debut with a goal in a 5-0 win over Finland. He signed his scholarship deal in July 2019.
