45. Isaac Hayden

A versatile player who has been capped by England up to U18 level, Issac enjoyed a tremendous 2012/13 campaign, as he established himself as a regular for the U21s whilst also turning in several commendable performances in the NextGen Series.

Equally comfortable at centre-back or in central-midfield, whilst having also previously featured at right-back and as a playmaker, Hale End product Isaac began the campaign in the U18s, building upon the experience he gained during his impressive first season as a scholar.

He was soon promoted to the U21 set-up on a regular basis, however, and featured regularly at that level during the second half of the season, forging an impressive partnership with the now-departed Sead Hajrovic.

Isaac was also one of the stars of the club’s run to the semi-finals of the NextGen Series, turning in impressive performances in a range of positions. The youngster impressed with his reading of the game, so much so that he was invited to train with the first-team squad on several occasions towards the end of the season.

He could earn a call-up for the Capital One Cup this season, and will be hoping to continue to establish himself as a prominent figure in the U21 set-up.

    have to say, been impressed by isaac when watching him, even though there are rare occasions you are able to watch the arsenal reserves nowadays. stamina, physical presence, good passer, brave. has done well when playing dm. since i believe we lack a cb in the first team coming through the own ranks i would like to see him there.
