Chelsea’s youth team goalkeeper, Prince Adegoke took a step towards greater relevance with The Blues on Wednesday, as he was part of their under-18 squad for their final game of the season against Arsenal.
With Chelsea winning the national title after beating Manchester United 3-0 last weekend, the youth team’s manager, Jody Morris brought a very youthful team to the Cobham Training Centre and named Adekoge among his five substitutes.
However, Adegoke ended up as one of the two Chelsea players that remained on the bench for the entirety of the game, but Arsenal gave a debut to emergent striker, Daniel Oyegoke, who put in a full shift, while Ovie Ejeheim and Malcolm Ebiowei were unused.
Adegoke was snapped up by Chelsea in April 2016 after he was spotted playing for the U12 team of Kent County Division 1 West club Club Langley FC.
He will now aim to take after the heroics of Tariq Uwakwe and Fasutino Anjorin, who were important members of Chelsea U18 team in the just concluded season.
