Date of birth
Like his fellow academy graduates Joe Rowley and Jack Brownell, Charlie Wakefield made the step up from youth team to first team during the 2016/17 season.
Born in Derby, Wakefield made his first team debut when he appeared as a late susbtitute in the 3-1 defeat at Scunthorpe United in April when still a first-year scholar.
Wakefield also has an eye for goal, with goals against Walsall in the FA Youth Cup and Mansfield Town for the reserves catching the eye during last season.
A left footed player, Wakefield is comfortable playing at either left back, central / left midfield. He has been with the club since the age of 10.
Wakefield's first league start came on the opening day of the season against Grimsby Town.
