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 getting a squad number. It got even better than that too; the centre half thrust into the action early in the season. With injuries to senior players opening up a spot for Fernandez, the young lad made a great first impression; taking to the first team like a proverbial duck to water.
After making his mark in Boro’s youth side, the 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 was down the pecking order to start with, knowing there’s a number on your shirt is always good to have. It was the case going into the 2020-1 season too. And who knows where it could then lead to? As ever, only time can tell with that one. But he’d put himself on the right track and into the mind of the management.
