Jack Stretton began the 2018/19 season on fire and played a key role in the Under-18s’ charge to the Premier League title.
An out-and-out striker - Stretton’s 14 goals in all competitions last season came in just 14 starts, but most of those came in the first half of the season before injuries struck.
Remarkably, despite missing a large chunk of the season, Stretton still ended the campaign as the Under-18s’ second-highest goalscorer behind Morgan Whittaker.
A perfect demonstration of his qualities came in the Premier League Cup quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur, when he scored twice in a 2-0 win at Loughborough University Stadium.
