Huddersfield-born, the imposing 19-year-old centre-back attended Salendine Nook High School and played for YMCA before joining his hometown club at 11. Useful at attacking set-pieces, he has also operated in central midfield.

Tadhg Ryan

Just turned 19, the keeper caught the eye in junior football before signing for Limerick, from whom Town signed him in 2014. As a youngster, he was part of the Football Association of Ireland’s emerging talent programme.
