Biography

Wickens is a bright young goalkeeper who is one of the crop of so many promising goalkeepers in the club. He is part of the group of new scholars, having spent several years in the academy. The young stopper has made an impression in his first few games with his confidence and reflexes. 

He has been involved in the England schoolboys set-up in what has been a great year for him. Wickens capped off an impressive breakthrough season by earning a call-up to England Under-18s alongside fellow stopper Luca Ashby-Hammond.

A run of games in Mark Pembridge's side followed at the back end of the 18/19 season as he signed a professional contract in a meteoric rise through the ranks.
