Robins agree transfer of youngster Evans-Harriott

28 February 2020

Cheltenham Town can confirm an agreement has been reached regarding the transfer of first year scholar Aaron Evans-Harriott to League One club Coventry City.

The 17-year-old has progressed through the academy system at Cheltenham and joins the Sky Blues after a compensation package has been agreed between the two clubs.

The Wales youth international made his first team debut with the Robins in the October 2019 Trophy win over West Ham United under-21s.

In doing so he became the youngest player to represent the club in the Football League era at the age of 17 and 22 days.

Having started in the club's academy system at a younge age, his debut shortly after his 17th birthday proved to be a special moment for 'Bubbles' as he is affectionately known having grown up watching the club as a supporter on the terraces.

He has been in fine form for Pete Haynes' under-18s squad this season, playing a key role in the FA Youth Cup run that saw the scholars defeat Eastleigh and Portsmouth on their way to taking Arsenal to a penalty shootout in the third round.
