Athletic right-back Tafari developed well during his first season as a scholar and went on to sign his first professional contract ahead of the new campaign.
Having already featured ten times for the U18s whilst he was still a schoolboy, Tafari, who can also operate as a left-back if required, made his first forays into U21 football last season, particularly when Hector Bellerin joined Watford on loan.
The Hale End product didn’t disappoint, making seven starts for Steve Gattings’ side, whilst also featuring in the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup. The hard-working youngster still made several appearances for the U18s, and scored his first goal at that level against Wolverhampton Wanderers towards the end of the campaign.
Tafari capped off an eventful season by helping England U17s to win the UEFA European Championships for their age group.
