Bristol City have a number of youngsters in their squad this season as manager, Lee Johnson, looks to find the right blend of experience and youth in his side.
They’ll be looking to make a claim in the team ahead of a potentially successful season, and Johnson has already showed his faith in one young defender as Taylor Moore replaced the injured Tomas Kalas in the Robins side.
There isn’t just youngsters in the first-team squad that need to be on the radar at Ashton Gate, there’s also some in the lower age groups who deserve to be praised and are showing the potential to kick on to help the future of the club.
So, here are 2 Bristol City ‘wonderkids’ that should be on the radar of Robins fans…
James Morton had a very successful couple of loan spells at Bath City last season. The midfielder scored one goal and was able to notch 12 assists for the Romans as they went on to reach the Vanarama National League South play-offs.
He’s a talented central midfielder and is highly rated by many at the club. Morton is now spending the season on loan at League Two side, Forest Green, as he looks to work his way up the system preparing for future football with the Robins.
It’s a smart move for the player and will only help him develop both mentally and physically.
The winger was brought in by Bristol City from Newport County after impressing on loan in the under-18s side last season.
He’s a pacy forward that troubles defences with his speed and dribbling skills and is going to spend the season out on loan at Bath City, just like Morton did.
The attributes that he possesses are always wanted by teams across the country every transfer window, and at just 18-years-old, he has so much potential to go on and give himself a really good chance of performing for Bristol City in the coming years.
