All-action midfielder George Lapslie exploded on to the first team with some full blooded performances under the stewardship of Lee Bowyer.
Having captained Charlton’s U18s to the Professional Development League 2 national title a year earlier, he became a regular for Jason Euell’s development squad, playing both at right-back and in his familiar central-midfield role.
A Charlton supporter, Essex-based Lapslie – whose brother Tom is also a professional – possesses boundless energy and a never-say-die attitude.
Combative would be an understatement, the young midfielder will always battle to win back possession and gives his all in every game be it at senior level or not. He made 32 appearances least season finding the net once in the 8-0 demolition of Stevenage. His efforts throughout the campaign didn't go unnoticed, with Lapslie winning the Young Player of The Year award.
