2 youngsters emerging at Nottingham Forest that Reds fans need to be aware of



Their league positions have fluctuated in recent years, but one thing that has remained constant at Nottingham Forest is their ability to produce talented young players.

In the summer, Forest bid farewell to homegrown star Matty Cash, who joined Aston Villa for £16million and is now making a name for himself in the Premier League.

The summer transfer window also saw Oliver Burke move to Sheffield United, and Joe Worrall attract plenty of interest from Burnley.

Ben Osborn, Ben Brereton, Jamaal Lascelles, Karl Darlow. Four more players who also came through the ranks on Trentside before moving to the top-flight for substantial fees.

Did Lars Veldwijk ever score a league goal for Forest?

Forest have a knack of producing and developing young talent under Gary Brazil’s tutelage, and even this season, the likes of Alex Mighten, Brennan Johnson and Ryan Yates have impressed.

Who could be the next Matty Cash and Arvin Appiah? Here, we look at two youngsters at Nottingham Forest that fans need to be made aware of…

Will Swan

Swan is really starting to catch the eye after a number of impressive performances for Andy Reid’s Under-23 side.

The 20-year-old has scored eight goals for the Under-23s already this season, and netted a brace in a recent 3-0 victory over Colchester United at Meadow Lane.

He spent time on loan in the National League South with Truro City last season, and it remains to be seen what lies in store for him in the near future.

But he is clearly a young striker with lots of potential and an eye for a goal, who could well be handed a first-team chance in the future.

James Clarridge 

Clarridge is said to be highly regarded at the City Ground and could well be one for the future.

The 16-year-old centre-half attracted interest from the Premier League in the summer, after featuring for England’s Under-16 side and impressing for the Young Lions.

The defender is particularly impressive on the ball and playing out from the back, and with a couple of years of development under his belt, he could be one for the first-team along with Loic Mbe Soh.
