Young Liverpool-born defender who came through the Academy from the age of 13 and progressed to make his first team debut in the opening game of the 2016-17 season at Bristol City, a proud moment for club and player alike.

A tenacious tackler who can operate at full back, right wing-back or as a centre half, he captained the Wigan Athletic Under 18s team as they reached the FA Youth Cup 5th Round in 2015-16, and picked up the Michael Millet award for Under 18s Player of The Year. Highly thought-of at the club.
