Charlie Patino (L2015-20) - One to watch
02 February 2022
We have been watching Charlie's progress since he left school with real interest. He was a game changer when he was at Aldenham as part of two of the ISFA National Cup winning sides. His Senior Team Debut with Arsenal was a great example of what he demonstrated in his school games all the time! In the Arsenal versus Sunderland match in the EFL cup in December 2021 Charlie was given his chance as a player at professional level. He grabbed this and displayed exactly what has led pundits to describe him as the 'wonder kid'. It was in added time that he calmly slotted the ball past the Sunderland keeper. An excellent goal to show that dreams can come true! As he himself said after his debut game, "What a night!". We are sure there is much more to come from Charlie, so watch this space for updates.
