Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall made his first team debut in the 4th round FA Cup match v. Brentford and for us who really loves to see the academy flourish and getting players up and through it’s like Santa coming with presents.
Kiernan has gone the grades at Leicester City and waited patiently for his chance and been involved in the first team squad on a number of occasions before, but it wasn’t before this Saturday afternoon at Griffin Park that he actually got a chance to play in an official first team game.
Have watched this youngster a number of times in the U.23’s and he caught your attention as one who could come through and make the grade.
He is seen as a defensive midfielder and operates centrally in the U.23’s and a clear regular for Steve Beaglehole, as he mostly use Kiernan to “steady the ship”. He has played all 15 league games in the PL 2 and as we speak Leicester are 2nd in the table on 28 points, just three points behind leaders Chelsea.
Alongside Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall you also have a number of other talented players, a few of them have already been involved in the first team at some point. Thakgolo Leshabela is one, Admiral Muskwe another. George Hirst and Callum Wright are also players to watch very closely.
The U.23 team are steadily selected and you can look up all their results and games from our season update site. Never miss out on any result involving Leicester City A, U.23 or U.18, always available at our site.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is following Hamza Choudhury, Ben Chilwell and Josh Knight among others in a proud tradition at Leicester City to bring forward home grown talent and really looking at the academy as a very important asset to bring forward solid talent.
TCF would like to see Leicester City using the academy even more in their recruitment strategy instead of splashing cash on players that you really don’t see the need for and that probably have been the clubs weakest link over the past years.
