A talented young stopper who was involved with the U21s early on in his career, Luke Southwood also represented England at U19 level early in his career. He has shown great ability with the ball on the floor, he can make good decisions and saves, and is working hard to dominate his six-yard box too.
In 2016-17, Southwood guarded the Royals goal on 17 occasions for our Under-23 side, notably keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win away at Manchester United earlier in the season. He also represented his country and kept a clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Senegal as England U20s secured a Tournoi tournament victory back in March 2017.
And the Academy graduate goalkeeper was included in England's 21-man squad which travelled to the Far East for the U20 World Cup Finals in South Korea!
