Born: 01 September 2000 (Wycombe, England)
Attacking midfielder Phoenix Patterson started 20 of our 22 Under-18 Premier League games in 2017-18 and returned six goals - including a memorable hat-trick in a 6-3 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion in January, 2018.
Always dangerous and showing good balance with the ball at his feet as he comes in from wide areas, Phoenix also started all six of our games on our run to the Under-18 Premier League Cup Final during that season and played in all three of our FA Youth Cup outings, scoring in a 5-0 home victory over Preston North End on a bitterly cold December day in 2017. His debut in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League came in March, 2018, as he stepped off the bench in a quarter-final home defeat to FC Porto.
He previously featured 13 times for our Under-18s in 2016-17, scoring against Aston Villa in February, 2017. He started five matches that season, his full debut coming in a 4-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in October, 2016.
He was previously with Wycombe Wanderers, having been born in High Wycombe and brought up in the nearby village of Penn and attended John Hampden Grammar School.
