2 Stoke City youngsters who look set for a very bright future in the game

Tyrese Campbell’s return to senior action has been a real boost for Stoke City over the past month or so. 

The 21-year-old’s emergence over the last few seasons has seen him rise out of the U23s and become one of the most exciting young forwards in the Championship but who could be the next to make such a transition for the Potters?

There are players at the Bet365 Stadium capable of making a significant mark in the senior game and with that in mind, we’ve highlighted the two Stoke youngsters who look set for a very bright future…

Have Stoke City ever won an away game at each of these 20 stadiums?

Have Stoke City ever won a game at the Emirates Stadium?

Douglas Taylor

If Michael O’Neill feels he needs more forward firepower then bringing Douglas Taylor into the senior squad could be something he considers.

The agile and powerful 20-year-old striker joined the Potters last summer after impressing for Salford City’s U18s and has carried that form over into the U23s – scoring 11 times in 30 Premier League 2 appearances.

Taylor has stepped up to every new challenge in his career to date and senior level could be the next one, whether that’s with Stoke or on loan somewhere else.

He’s certainly someone that the Championship club’s fanbase should be excited about.

Adam Porter

While James-Taylor only arrived in the Potteries last year, 19-year-old midfielder Adam Porter is Stoke through and through.

The boyhood Potters fan joined the club at the age of six and has captained every age-group side up to the U23s.

The teenager was handed his debut in the EFL Cup earlier this season but is currently out on loan with non-league Altrincham and has impressed already.

Few midfielders of Porter’s age have the sort of in-game intelligence and understanding that he does while he can count O’Neill on his list of admirers.

At age-group level, he’s proven himself a midfielder capable of scoring and creating goals as well.

Stoke supporters will hope to see him doing that in the first team soon.
