Cameron Humphreys

Manchester-born defender Cameron Humphreys enjoyed a fantastic season in 2014/15 and he was duly rewarded with a coveted spot on the first team 2015 pre-season tour of Australia before celebrating his 17th birthday.

An accomplished centre back who can also feature as a right-sided full back, Cameron caught Manuel Pellegrini’s eye, making his senior debut against Adelaide United and then playing alongside skipper Vincent Kompany in the historic clash against Melbourne on the Gold Coast.

Cameron topped off his tour experience by playing the full 90 minutes against Real Madrid, where he faced off against some of the cream of the world's talent, including Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, before being old enough to get his driving licence. 

Comfortable playing up the age groups, he made his u18s debut while still eligible for the u16 age group and was involved with the u21s while on pre-season tour in Croatia as a first year scholar.

Virtually ever present for the u18s in his first campaign as a full time footballer, he missed just six league games all season while playing every single minute of the FA Youth Cup campaign as Jason Wilcox’s men became the first City team since 2008 to reach the final.

His impressive form at club level has long since been recognised  by the England youth set-up - he was a part of the u17 squad at the 2013 Nordic Tournament as a 14-year-old, and captained his country in November 2013 in a Victory Shield clash against Scotland.
