Joe Hancott



DOB: 08/03/2001

Full back Hancott, hailing from the Isle of Wight, is another first-year scholar that became part of the Under-18s in July 2017, having been on the club's books for eight years.

Made his professional debut for the Blues in August 2017 - aged just 16 years and 116 days, a club record for a debutant - when he was awarded a start against Fulham U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy, playing the full 90 minutes.

Very much a modern full back, Hancott likes to get forward on the overlap and has impressed within the academy at every age group for which he has appeared.
