Charlie Lakin Player Profile
Debut: Mansfield Town (A, 0-0), 24/08/2019
In on a season-long loan from Birmingham City, Charlie Lakin arrived at the Lamex in August 2019 to boost a Boro’ squad struggling with injuries. A left-sided midfielder, the player had already turned out for the Blues’ first team before joining us. As is often the case, however, chances to shine at St Andrews were not in abundance given his youth. So, he came to us looking for the first team experience that’d push him on.
To be fair, he did get 10 outings in the Championship during the 2018-9 season. But it seemed likely more opportunities would come his way with us. Not least because we’d been losing lads to the treatment room left, right and centre at the start of the 2019-20 campaign. With the early promise shown at the Blues earning him a one-year contract extension, there was no fear that he could slot right into our ranks and make his mark.
