Talented prospect Xavier Amaechi has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The Hale End product, who is usually deployed as a winger but can also operate as an attacking midfielder, hit a brace in the FA Youth Cup third round victory over Sheffield Wednesday last month.

Excellent technically and possessing impressive pace, Amaechi is a very exciting talent for whom there are high hopes at the club.

Amaechi, who turns 17 today, missed the start of the season through injury but has scored three goals in as many U18 league games since returning to fitness and also made his competitive debut for the U23s in the defeat away to Swansea City.
