The German U18 international has been bang in form this season and has formed an excellent partnership with Bobby Duncan for Barry Lewtas’ U18s side. The duo have scored 55 goals between them this season- Glatzel has bagged 23 of these.
Glatzel’s impressive form was rewarded with an appearance for the U23s showing the academy staff have faith in him. He repaid his faith in Alex Inglethorpe and Co, scoring the winner on his debut against West Ham in a 1-0 victory.
This deal has been signed on his 18th birthday, a great present I’m sure for the youngster.
