Nathan Redmond: Big Step for Birmingham’s Young Winger

Redmond fires in City's opener against Nacional

Nathan Redmond is rapidly becoming one of the hottest properties in English football and is set to make a huge impact on the game in years to come.

The Birmingham City winger has been a regular in the Championship and Europa League this year despite only being 17-years-old.

Redmond impressed whilst in Mexico with his England Under-17 teammates and it is rumoured that he will soon receive a call-up to the Under-21 side.

This news comes as Noel Blake excluded him from the Under-19 squad travelling to France next week. With a tough test against Iceland coming up for Stuart Pearce’s men, Redmond could get his chance to shine.

Nathan Redmond’s fine start to the season was marked by his stunning goal and man-of-the-match performance in Birmingham’s second-leg Europa League qualifying tie against Nacional. Redmond opened the scoring and picked up the award after truly making a lasting impression on The Blues fans.

Redmond has experienced victory in the Victory Shield and Montaigu Tournament with England Under-16s and was rapidly promoted up an agegroup into the Under-17 squad.

Being born in Birmingham, Redmond knows exactly what it’s like to be passionate about your club and therefore seeing someone come through the youth ranks at such a young age, yet still play competitively is a real highlight for them.

He impressed Birmingham City scouts at the tender age of 8 and has never looked back since.

We hope to see Nathan Redmond named in the England Under-21 squad later this week and regularly on the international scene in the near future.

  1. I especially like your last paragraph – and I did start a blog – two in fact – just a few months ago! I always write letters to my children at Christmas – sometimes more often, but at least once a year. They know their letters will be in their stockings! Probably wouldn’t do anything you said not to – just a little bit inhibited! But that’s just me. Congratulations on being freshly pressed!
