Six of Fulham’s outstanding academy scholars have signed professional contracts, the club confirmed this afternoon.

Charlie Robinson was swiftly promoted into Steve Wigley’s under 23s after a number of encouraging early displays for the under 18s. The centre back, who won the Premier League’s scholar of the year award, played sixteen times as the under-23s won the PL2 Division Two title at a canter.

Cypriot midfielder George Okkas enjoyed an excellent campaign at the heart of the under-18 engine room – playing 23 times as Ali Melloul’s side finished a transitional season under a new coach incredibly strongly.

Eighteen year-old centre forward Olly Sanderson will move into the under 21 squad after scoring fifteen goals and adding five assists in 23 matches for Fulham’s under 18s. Delano McCoy-Splatt, Imani Lanquedoc and Terrell Works have also put pen to paper on professional contracts after emerging as key players in Melloul’s new-look starting line-up and will look to kick on.
