Captain and leader at the back
Another youngster that is making waves in the Academy at City, Joel is another U16 player that made the step up to the U18s last season.
Latibeaudiere fits the role of the modern centre back perfectly: powerful, elegant and confident on the ball.
He first appeared for Jason Wilcox’s side in the 6-1 win at Middlesbrough, coming on for Joe Coveney in the second half before making his first start in the 1-1 away draw with Liverpool in early November.
Part of the U15s side that won the Neon Cup in May 2015, Latibeaudiere has been a mainstay and inspirational leader at the back for Lee Carsley's incredible unbeaten U18s side - only missing matches when away on England duty.
