Introducing Louis Stephenson

25 October 2022

Keith Curle has named his squad for this evening's game against Salford City FC and there's a place on the bench for Academy scholar, Louis Stephenson. Here's what you need to know about the youth team player.

Louis Stephenson is a first-year apprentice and joined the club in July 2022 as part of the new intake of full-time apprentices.

Louis celebrated his 17th birthday last week and has thrived in the new Academy setup as a full-back or central defender. Stephenson previous clubs are: Leven FC, Stockton Town District u16 and Cleveland County u16.

Academy Manager Andy Lowe commented: ‘We are absolutely delighted for Louis to be given this opportunity to be part of the first team squad this evening and congratulate Louis on this important milestone in his development. This is an extremely proud moment for Louis, his family, and the Academy. In recent weeks, a number of players have been invited to train with the first team which is a real positive for the academy and further enhances the relationship developed in such a short period of time between the new Manager Keith Curle and our academy.’

Stephenson will wear the number 29 shirt.
