Toby Omole- A centre-back who is a graduate of Arsenal’s Hale End academy, Omole has struggled on the few occasions he’s played for the U18s so far but he fared rather better in the Future Cup and could have an important part to play for Frans De Kat’s team next season.

Joseph Olowu- The centre-back has been a mainstay for the U16s this season and has been offered a scholarship deal for next campaign, with the youngster hoping to show that he can deal with the step up to U18 football.

Xavier Amaechi- A player with much potential, Amaechi usually features as an attacking midfielder and, as he demonstrated against Ajax, is capable of finishing well. The youngster will be a regular for the U16s next season and may also make some appearances for the U18s.

Olujimi Olayinka- A midfielder who is a good dribbler and passer, Olayinka is highly regarded by the club’s coaching staff and will be seeking to make a sizeable impact for the U16s next season.
