A highly rated, steadily emerging midfield prospect at the Club, Irishman Patrick enjoyed another good year last season.

He progressed to the Under-19s, scoring four times in 21 appearances, and also stepped up to the reserves, playing six times at that level, as well  as two FA Youth Cup games.

The Irish Youth International is happy as a holding midfielder, but also excels when going forward.
