City's Young Professionals...
Marauding left-back Abbruzzese stepped up from U18 football to sign his first professional deal for City ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.
Harris, who plays in attacking midfield, also went on to sign a professional contract ahead of making his First Team debut in the FA Cup against Fulham on Sunday 8th June, while right-back Coxe followed him in putting pen to paper the next month.
Since then, eighteen-year-old Harris has gone on to feature on the bench in several league matches, before starting in his full league debut away to Wigan Athletic on Saturday 22nd April.
We wish them all the very best in the tournament - good luck boys!
