Imposing centre-back Stefan established himself as a key member of the U21 squad during the first season of his scholarship.
The club made a late decision to offer the Hale End product a two-year deal and he made the most of his opportunity, demonstrating his leadership qualities across a range of competitions.
Having already built up considerable experience of U18 football whilst he was a schoolboy, Stefan went on to make eight league appearances for the U21s last season, scoring his first goal at that level in the win over Manchester City.
He also featured in the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup during an eventful campaign. Adept at winning possession, his distribution still requires some work.
