Arthur Iontton Player Profile
Debut: Exeter City (H, 3-1), 28/04/2018
Arthur Iontton is the young midfielder that Boro’ have high hopes for; emerging from our youth set-up and talked up as our next big prospect. He has big shoes to fill in that sense. After Ben Wilmot became our first million-pounder, the next name on the lips of the gaffer and chairman was young Arthur. No pressure, eh?
Iontton made his debut for the first team towards the end of the 2017-8 campaign and saw yet more action during the 2018-9 season too. Never not far from the matchday squad each week, the midfielder clocked up 21 appearances in total; netting his first goal too, as if the chattering classes needed yet more evidence of his talent.
His progress by summer 2019 was such that he was named LFE League Two Apprentice of the Year. Now, there was a lad who won it the year before on the books at Stevenage. What was his name again? Oh yes, it was yer wan Wilmot. Are the stars aligning in the midfielder’s favour? Let’s at least give him a chance to keep developing when the 2019-20 season rolls around, eh? It could be a big season for him, mind.
