Prolific teenager Dom Hutchinson is a Swiss Army knife of a striker, according to his Under-18 coach, and has the right attitude to kick on after winning a contract extension.
The former Beaumont School pupil rattled in 16 goals for the Under-18s this season, including 13 before Christmas, and has now been handed a one-year contract extension by the Hornets.
“I'm really pleased for him,” said Simon Clark, the Lead Professional Development Programme Coach. “He's got a lot to offer. He won't be fazed by the move up to the 23s and I know he's been working hard away from the training ground during this period. He'll understand what he needs to do, what he needs to work on and he's got that focus all footballers need to achieve something in the game. He'll embrace the step up.”
