Harry is doing well and enjoying the experience of being a member of the Academy.

Recently the team have beaten local rivals Exeter 4 -1 and success at Torquay United along with trips to Yeovil Town and Newport County.

Harry has also had the opportunity to play for the under 10’s team against Newport County where he again got on the score sheet.
