    Default Alex Mighten

    17 year old striker - https://www.football-wonderkids.co.u.../alex-mighten/

    On the bench for the carabao cup tonight - I didn’t realise he’d signed a pro deal already. Apparently started on his 17th birthday according to the above link.

    Grant and co are very excited about him.

    The pro contract was meant to kick in when he turned 17 in April but I imagine he has signed it now to have the involvement he has had.

    Mighten of the left, Arivin off the right with Brennan surging through the middle and linking with Will Swan (who has also been training with the first team) is the future attack. Love to see it

    Been easily beating his man all half in the game on the go. Nice assist here.

    I wonder if this kid is the reason we flogged Appiah

    Just compared the U18's photo above with our school first XI which was basically an U18 team. No wonder we were no blinking good!! Mind you it was 1959 so the kit and diet was slightly different. Plus I'll bet the England lads didn't have Woofer (our centre half) diving behind the sports pavilion for a quick drag.

    Looks like him. There’s a great interview with him on the Athletic. He’s a very bright young man and he hasn’t let that goal against Man U get to his head.

    Yeah, he's a very intelligent lad. Not too bad a player either, if a little small right now...

    I'm always amazed at the diversity when it comes to the England teams of all ages now.. There aren't many players from Asian backgrounds considering the British Asian population is double that of British Black..

    Has he signed his pro yet?

    I know it was announced a while back he'd agreed it, but heard he had held off on putting pen to paper.

    He was meant to have signed his first pro when he turned 17 last April. Pretty sure that has been sorted (was 1 or 2 hiccups) and it is only until end of next season.

    When he turns 18 you can offer him a longer term deal (no restrictions). Which is exactly what happened with Appiah and now Johnson.

    I think it's a cultural thing. Southern Asians for example tend to be heavily into cricket rather than football.

    Indeed - lots of factors involved, from religion to culture, family obligations etc...
    Things will change over the coming generations though...history tells us so.

    It is a great thing.
