MYLES | I OWE A LOT TO THE ACADEMY

20 April 2019

Town defender on his journey to the first-team

Blues full-back Myles Kenlock has emphasised the importance of the Club's Academy in his personal development as a footballer.

The 22-year-old arrived at Town when he was 16, and has worked closely with the likes of Bryan Klug (Head of Coaching and Player Development) as well as other current first-team players during his progression through the ranks.

"The Academy has been a huge help to me," he said.

"They've looked after me ever since I arrived and have helped in any way they can. I owe a lot to them.

"Bryan has been like a father figure to me. When I have wanted to talk he has always been there, but he's also been there to tell me off when needed!

"I also look at guys like Josh (Emmanuel), Doz (Andre Dozzell) and Flynn (Downes) as brothers. We have had years of friendship and know each other well both on and off the pitch - it's great to be part of the first-team with them now.

"It shows that the Academy's hard work isn't going to waste and it's important that continues."
