Good luck and best wishes go to Academy striker Jaiden White this week, who heads to Premier League club Fulham!
The 16 year old will spend a trial period with The Cottagers’ U18s group after a number of impressive performances for Harriers’ National League U19s Alliance team, as well as in the FA Youth Cup, where Harriers reached the First Round, facing Port Vale at Vale Park.
Having been one of numerous Academy players to train with the Harriers first team during the current season, White made his first team debut against Spennymoor Town on 8th January aged 16 years and 282 days, making him one of the club’s youngest players ever.
Fellow Academy players Reiss Taylor-Randle and Harry Stratford have also made their first team debuts this season, with the duo featuring against Atherstone Town in the FA Cup.
Striker Taylor-Randle and midfielder Stratford, both second year students, have spent trial periods with a EFL Championship club, with the former currently currently impressing during a trial spell with a EFL League Two club.
Additionally, 16 year old Academy left back James Dutton is set for a trial with a Championship club.
