Charlie Patino has signed his first professional contract.
The 17-year-old midfielder is an Arsenal Academy graduate and England international. Charlie has played for a higher age group every season for Arsenal, as well as England.
As a 14-year-old, Charlie captained England under-16s against Spain, and in the same year he made his debut for our under-18s against Chelsea.
He has played consistently for our under-18s this season, and is known for his technical ability and agility in midfield.
We congratulate Charlie on his first pro contract and look forward to supporting him with his continued development.
