City on Albinson:

A Bolton boy, Charlie Albinson has been climbing through the Academy age groups since the age of eight and was offered a professional contract after impressing through the two years of his scholarship.

The young stopper is cool under pressure and is particularly strong when facing a striker one on one, using his technique and agility to quickly smother the danger.

Always looking to build attacks from the back with short passes out of defence, the 18-year-old cites City no.1 Joe Hart as one of his biggest role models.

After making his u18 league debut in October 2013, Charlie was virtually an ever-present during 2014/15, missing just eight league games all season and making three starts in the run to the FA Youth Cup final.

Charlie will be hoping to gain more European exposure during the forthcoming campaign by making his mark in the UEFA Youth League squad.
