Edmonton-born full-back Kyle Walker-Peters has come up through our Academy system and made his senior debut from the start in a 2-0 win at Newcastle United on the opening weekend of the 2017-18 Premier League season.
He spent the latter months of the 2016-17 campaign training regularly with the first team and was named on the bench for our FA Cup home wins over Aston Villa and Wycombe Wanderers in January, 2017.
Rewarded with a new contract in February, 2017, he also started all six of our matches in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League and played 15 times for the Under-23s in the Premier League 2, scoring in away and home matches against Derby County.
Along with Josh Onomah, Kyle won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with England Under-20s in South Korea in June, 2017, in what was the first time England had won a World Cup at any level since 1966. On the bench for the Young Lions' first two matches, Kyle came in to start at left-back in the third and final group stage match against the host nation and was ever-present from there on in as England lifted the trophy with a 1-0 win over Venezuela in the final.
Featuring primarily at right-back for us but also capable of playing at left-back, Kyle has made good progress as he's come up through the ranks.
He played twice for the Under-18s in 2012-13 before featuring in 25 more league games at that level in addition to both FA Youth Cup ties we were involved in during 2013-14. He scored in a 5-1 league defeat of Wolves in April, 2014.
In 2014-15, Kyle helped us win the Premier League Under-18 Champions Cup and the IMG Cup in Florida and started all six games as we reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup. He scored twice in that competition, against Wolves and Nottingham Forest, and also netted once in 12 league starts for the Under-18s. By the end of that campaign, he was a regular for our Under-21s, making 13 appearances in total.
He made his senior debut on our post-season tour of Malaysia and Australia in May, 2015, and was a mainstay of our Under-21s side in 2015-16. He appeared in 20 of our 22 league games at that level - starting all of them - and also started all four of our games in the Premier League Under-21 International Cup.
He was crowned Under-21s Player of the Month by the Premier League in December, 2015 - a month that also saw him sign a new contract with the Club - and made his first senior matchday squad appearance when he was named on the bench for our 3-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth in March, 2016.
Kyle earned his first opportunity on the international stage when he was called up by England Under-18s in September, 2014. He has since been capped at Under-19 and Under-20 levels.
