Will Armitage: From Cheltenham to Southampton

11 February 2022

Earlier this month 16-year-old Will Armitage's transfer from Cheltenham Town to Southampton was confirmed.

The central defender has joined the Premier League club from the Robins having made impressive progress in his time with the academy at the club.

Academy manager Antoine Thompson, under-18s manager Pete Haynes and Head of Academy Coaching Tim Bell have been reflecting on Armitage's time at Cheltenham and how his transfer to the top flight with the Saints provides the inspiration for future academy talents at the club.

Watch their thoughts on Armitage's time as a player with the Robins and subsequent move to Southampton as part of the final day of the EFL's Youth Development Week above on iFollow. It's also available to watch on the EFL iFollow app.
