Wolves’ new full time Academy scholars were officially welcomed to the club last night at an induction evening held at Molineux.
Some new faces joined others who have already been at the club - and progressed through the Academy - for a number of years.
The players and parents were able to officially meet all the Academy coaching and administration staff and hear about the programme they will be following over the two years of their scholarship, with the aim for all - to win that first professional contract.
“Whether it is Connor Ronan coming in at age 16, or Morgan Gibbs-White aged eight, it is always important to make sure everyone is welcomed properly to the Academy,” said Academy manager Gareth Prosser.
“Last night was a chance for the new intake of full-time scholars to meet all the staff, and to be congratulated on joining an elite Academy.
“The message then is that now the hard work really starts, or indeed continues for those who have been with us for many years already.
“They will get all the support that they need across all the different areas of the Academy programme, and it is up to the boys to work as hard as they can to make the most of their opportunity.”
A couple of new arrivals were also included in last night’s induction evening.
Enzo Sauvage is joining the Academy programme as a second year scholar, and Terry Taylor will join as a first year.
