After smashing 15 year record, Jayden Fevrier one to watch for West Ham

West Ham United may have an up and coming star to keep an eye in the form of Jayden Fevrier after the teenager smashed club captain Mark Noble’s record as the youngest ever player to feature for the club’s under 23 team.

Fevrier made his debut as a substitute against Leicester City in October at the age of 15 years, six months and 12 days, beating Noble’s record by two and a half months when he made his first appearance at that level in February 2003.

A versatile defender, Fevrier was deployed at left-back and continues to progress, having only made his under 18 debut a year before, in November 2017, at the age of just 14 years and seven months.

The youngster’s rapid rise through the ranks has impressed a number of coaches and, given the opportunities afforded to the likes of Grady Diangana and Declan Rice in the past year, he may hope to continue building on that.

It is still early days in Fevrier’s development at the club, but given his versatility, it is easy to see why he is a coach’s dream. Much like Noble, his attitude has opened doors for him and made a strong first impression.

Now, the England under 16 international will hope to continue to build on his success to date and follow further in the footsteps of Noble in progressing from inexperienced teenager to club captain.
