Born: 26 February 1999 (Enfield, England)
A midfielder who has a knack of arriving late in the box and scoring goals, Jack Roles made the permanent step up to Under-23 level in 2017-18.
After struggling for starts in the opening months of the season, the Cyprus Under-21 international came into the side and enjoyed a run of scoring in four consecutive games in all competitions around the end of January. In all, he made 12 appearances at Under-23 level across three different competitions while also scoring once in seven appearances in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League.
Born and bred in Enfield, Jack attended Enfield Grammar School and won a host of trophies while playing for the school football team. He also represented the school at cricket and athletics and has been at the Club since he was six.
A right-footer, Jack played twice for our Under-18s in 2014-15, making his debut as a substitute against Chelsea in February, 2015.
He made good progress in 2015-16. He had to wait until October 24, 2015, and a home game against Leicester City for his first Under-18s appearance of the campaign but he soon found his stride and by the end of that season he'd tallied 16 appearances and three goals.
He was top scorer for our Under-18s in 2016-17, netting 15 goals in 21 league games at that level, including a sparkling hat-trick away at Southampton in November, 2016. He also netted four times in as many games in the FA Youth Cup, opened his European account away to Bayer Leverkusen a month earlier in one of four games he played in the UEFA Youth League and won the IMG Cup in Florida with our Under-18s in December, 2016.
