To have made his debut at the age of 16 speaks to the calibre of youngster Will Bapaga seems to be. Capped by England at schoolboy level and heavily involved with the first-team’s pre-season ahead of much older players in the under-23s, Bapaga was handed his debut in the goalless draw with Bolton Wanderers early in the season. Although there was little time for Bapaga to get on the ball, his pace and willingness to take on defenders suggests he is someone capable of making an impact if called upon at first-team level again. As such a young player, there is little pressure on him to make the breakthrough anytime soon but it’s hard not to feel that someone playing first-team football at such a young age has been earmarked for a bright future.
