Lennon Wheeldon was one of ten first-year scholars to join Derby County’s Under-18s squad in the lead-up to the 2022/23 campaign.
Striker Wheeldon joined Derby from Notts County as an Under-16s player and he is regarded as an ‘old fashioned’ frontman.
He made five league appearances for the Under-18s during the 2021/22 campaign after impressing for the Under-16s.
In 2022/23, he stepped up his development and made 25 appearances which included five for the Under-21s.
He netted nine goals over the course of the campaign including an impressive hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Liverpool Under-18s.
