Reece Welch 64

Reece Welch has been part of the Finch Farm Academy since the age of eight, and made his breaktrhough into the Under-18s side in the 2018-19 season, scoring on his debut for the first game of the season, an impressive 2-1 win over Derby County, the reigning U18 Premier League Champions. And he was yet to turn 16!

Welch, who was born in Huddersfield, signed his first professional contract – a 3-year deal – just after his 17th birthday in September 2020 and rapid advancement in the Under-23 side saw him promoted to training with the senior squad in the Spring of 2021.

Since he stepped  up to the first-team squad, the 17-year-old Welch had impressed Carlo Ancelotti, making the senior bench for the first time away at Brighton in April 2021, then at home to Spurs,  amidst a massive injury crisis. But Ancelotti, who would rarely play any of the many youngsters called upon to make up the numbers on the expanded 9-man subs bench for senior games, did not give him a senior debut at that stage.
