Luis Fernandez Player Profile
Debut: Southend United (H, 1-2), 13/08/2019
A regular in our U18 team, young defender Luis Fernandez made a small step up at the start of the 2019-20 season by being handed a squad number. It got even better than that too; the centre half finding himself thrust into the action early in the season. With injuries to senior players opening up a window for Fernandez, the young lad made a superb first impression in the first team.
After making his mark in Boro’s youth, a chance to show what he could do in the first team came his way that pre-season; an outing against Peterborough United coming his way. While he may be down the pecking order to start with, knowing there’s a number on your shirt is always good to have. And who knows where it could then lead to? As ever, only time can tell with that one.
