Oriol Rey - Signed from Barcelona at the start of the campaign. The defender has played a key role in the under-23's recent resurgence and notched a wonder goal against Nottingham Forest earlier this season.

Sam Dalby - Signed from National League outfit Leyton Orient in January. The 18-year-old striker has been scoring goals for fun at under-23 level having found the back of the net five times in seven appearances in the Development League.
