Edmonton-born full-back Kyle Walker-Peters has come up through our Academy system and made his senior debut from the start in a 2-0 win at Newcastle United on the opening weekend of the 2017-18 Premier League season.
He spent the latter months of the 2016-17 campaign training regularly with the first team and was named on the bench for our FA Cup home wins over Aston Villa and Wycombe Wanderers in January, 2017.
He also started all six of our matches in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League and played 15 times for the Under-23s in the Premier League 2, scoring in away and home matches against Derby County.
Along with Josh Onomah, Kyle won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with England Under-20s in South Korea in June, 2017, in what was the first time England had won a World Cup at any level since 1966. On the bench for the Young Lions' first two matches, Kyle came in to start at left-back in the third and final group stage match against the host nation and was ever-present from there on in as England lifted the trophy with a 1-0 win over Venezuela in the final.
Featuring primarily at right-back for us but also capable of playing at left-back, Kyle has made good progress as he's come up through the ranks.
He played twice for the Under-18s in 2012-13 before featuring in 25 more league games at that level in addition to both FA Youth Cup ties we were involved in during 2013-14. He scored in a 5-1 league defeat of Wolves in April, 2014.
In 2014-15, Kyle helped us win the Premier League Under-18 Champions Cup and the IMG Cup in Florida and started all six games as we reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup. He scored twice in that competition, against Wolves and Nottingham Forest, and also netted once in 12 league starts for the Under-18s. By the end of that campaign, he was a regular for our Under-21s, making 13 appearances in total.
He made his senior debut on our post-season tour of Malaysia and Australia in May, 2015, and was a mainstay of our Under-21s side in 2015-16. He appeared in 20 of our 22 league games at that level - starting all of them - and also started all four of our games in the Premier League Under-21 International Cup.
He was crowned Under-21s Player of the Month by the Premier League in December, 2015 - a month that also saw him sign a new contract with the Club - and made his first senior matchday squad appearance when he was named on the bench for our 3-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth in March, 2016.
Kyle earned his first opportunity on the international stage when he was called up by England Under-18s in September, 2014. He has since been capped at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels.
