Another of those just turning 17 and getting a 3-year Pro deal. From the little I've seen of Charlie Whitaker he's looked really good, an attacking mid, often playing as a No 10, can tackle, moves forward with the ball and has scored a few cracking goals from outside of the box in past years. I think it was him who scored the U16 goal of the season shown last month, a free-kick from way outside the box. He also featured highly in that game v City of Liverpool back in January.

He's scored 3 goals so far, 2 in pre-season and the winner in our 2-1 win over Blackburn. Having said that, I was surprised he wasn't in the starting lineup in that Blackburn game last Saturday, so maybe Paul Tait doesn't rate him as highly, but he's been given a contract so must be showing something. One to look out for later in the season.
