79. Taylor Foran


Born: October 14th 2003

Position: Centre-back

International: None (eligible to represent England)

A tall defender who previously captained Arsenal at schoolboy level, Foran gained plenty of experience for Arsenal U18s last season and also featured in the FA Youth Cup.

Foran made his debut for the U23s in bizarre circumstances as he was sent on as a substitute goalkeeper against Manchester City due to a lack of alternative options. Despite the defeat, Foran was praised for his performance and he went on to make another appearance for the second-string against West Ham United in his usual position of centre-back.

This season Foran is set to be one of the most experienced members of the U18 squad and he will hope for further game time with the U23s in his quest to secure a professional deal.
