Jay Stansfield may not be a name many fans are familiar with at the moment but that could well change before too long with the form he is in at youth level.
Fulham have got a decent record of bringing through youth players into the first-team and, of course, onto clubs that play at the sharp end of the Premier League.
The Sessegnon brothers, Ryan and Steven, are examples of both in recent seasons and, by the looks of things, Stansfield has a chance of getting himself into the first-team reckoning before too long.
Indeed, he’s scored three hat-tricks in a row for Fulham this season in the u18s and, though it’s only youth football, that kind of record gets you noticed at any level.
He scored four against Norwich in his side’s latest fixture and fans are beginning to wonder whether first-team involvement should be around the corner.
Let’s see what’s been said on social media about the young forward:
He's making quite the name for himself.
The lads sit top of the table! 🔥
