The list of Academy graduates to have played for the first team keeps getting longer and longer.
And, in the opening week of the 2017/18 campaign, we have added four more names to that list.
Omar Richards was the first - he came off the bench for his first appearance away at Queens Park Rangers. And then he started against Gillingham in the Carabao Cup - as did Andy Rinomhota and Sam Smith for their first appearances in the hoops for the senior side.
They were joined in the closing stages by Axel Andresson, who made his bow from the bench in a 2-0 win against the Gills.
That means that no less than 45 players from our Academy now have first-team appearances to their name. Each of the four have now been added to the dedicated Academy Graduates section of our website... scroll around the carousel below and take a look at those who have trod the path before!
