Reece Welch 64

Reece Welch joined the Finch Farm Academy at the age of eight and made his breakthrough into the Under-18s side in the 2018-19 season, scoring on his debut for the first game of the season, an impressive 2-1 win over Derby County, the reigning U18 Premier League Champions, all before he turned 16.

Welch, who was born in Huddersfield, signed his first professional contract, a 3-year deal, just after his 17th birthday in September 2020 and rapid advancement in the Under-23 side saw him promoted to training with the senior squad by the Spring of 2021.

Together with his Academy team-mate Isaac Price, Reece stepped  up to the first-team squad as a 17-year-old after impressing Carlo Ancelotti and making the senior bench for the first time away at Brighton in April 2021.

He wouldn't get to make his senior bow under Ancelotti but did make his debut for the first team in March 2022 under new manager Frank Lampard when he came on as a late substitute in the FA Cup win over non-league Boreham Wood. Lampard would put him on the bench for 5 more games without giving him a senior debut in the Premier League but his first senior start would come in August 2022 in a League Cup tie at Fleetwood Town.
