GETTING SCOUTED...


WATMORE SAYS: “I was scouted by Sunderland when I was at Altrincham in the Conference North. I was playing well, scoring a few goals and a couple of the coaches from Sunderland came down to watch me, aged 18.”

HIS BEST GOAL...


WATMORE SAYS: “The one I scored for Altrincham which won the Goal Of The Season award. I got the ball before the halfway line, about 70 yards out from goal, played a one-two before beating about three or four players and putting it in the corner!”

HIS TOP SKILLS...


WATMORE SAYS: “I reckon it’s probably my pace and directness. I like to be really direct with the ball and make things happen. I try to create problems for defenders with the pace and energy I like to bring to the game.”

HIS TARGETS...


WATMORE SAYS: “I made a few appearances last season and I want to build on that and start more games. If I’m starting or I’m coming on, I know I’m playing well because the manager is using me.”

U21 BUZZ...


WATMORE SAYS: “It’s great playing for the U21s. We’ve got a great squad – a great group of guys – and all the staff are fantastic. It’s always a really good week when we’re away!”

HIS ONE TO WATCH...


WATMORE SAYS: “I know it’s a bit obvious as everyone knows about him already, but Marcus Rashford’s great. He scored a hat-trick on his U21s debut, so I have to pick him. He’s very impressive, a major talent.”
