Fulham midfielder Luke Harris’ exceptional start to the new season continued as he scored on his debut for Wales’ under 18 side this afternoon.

The all-action sixteen year-old made a real impression with Steve Wigley’s under 18s as the young Whites won the Premier League south title and was fast-tracked into the under-23 set-up. He scored on his debut for the under 23s at Sunderland in the first game of this season – and drove home the opener for Wales against the England U18s in Newport after making a trademark late run in the penalty area.

Harris’ Fulham team-mate Michael Olakigbe made his England under 18s debut as a substitute in the same fixture and went close to scoring as well – denied by an excellent stop from the Welsh goalkeeper.
