Our academy has long been known for creating and nurturing young talent, and it looks as though we’ve got another one on our hands in Omari Hutchinson. The Arsenal U12s star is already a cut or two above others in his age range, and looks as though he’d be comfortable playing with a far older group.
Skills obviously aren’t what get you to the pinnacle in the modern game, but they can help you go a long way. Hutchinson appears to have an abundance of skill, but that’s not all he has to offer.
Many freestylers are one trick ponies, and plateau quickly after not progressing or learning the qualities required to succeed. Hutchinson looks to have already added, pace, strength, and an eye for goal and to pick a pass. Perhaps most surprisingly though, is his seemingly unselfish nature, and despite clearly being a level above his peers, he regularly looks to pick a pass and play one-twos.

It’s obviously going to be a long time before we see anything from Hutchinson, as he’s years and years from even coming close to making the first team – if he ever does. It’s excellent to see such a promising talent among our ranks though, and it gives us something exciting to look forward to in the future.
