Harry Hawkins was one of several players to join Derby County’s Under-18s squad on a full-time basis in the summer of 2022.
Hawkins was rewarded with a two-year scholarship after excelling at youth level in the 2021/22 campaign, during which time he was named as the Academy Player of the Year for his performances.
Whilst still a schoolboy he racked up 16 league appearances for the Under-18s over the course of the campaign.
In 2022/23, his development ramped up even further as he made 31 appearances, 16 for the Under-21s and 15 for the Under-18s.
He also earned a spot on the bench for the first team during their EFL Trophy clash again Manchester City Under-21s at Pride Park Stadium in October 2022.
The midfielder can play in a variety of roles in the middle of the park but is most at home playing as a deep-lying position.
