After a season starring for the Fulham Under-18’s, Emerson Hyndman has been rewarded by the club for all his work.
The grandson of FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman has signed a contract extension through the end of June 2016, just three months after signing his first professional contract with the club. The diminutive (5-foot-3 inch) midfielder has played with the U.S. Under-15s and Under-17s in the past, though wasn’t part of the failed qualifying effort for the Under-17 World Cup.
Hyndman joined the Fulham Academy in 2011, leaving his hometown of Dallas and the FC Dallas youth scheme behind. The 17-year old made his return to Dallas last March, playing with Fulham in the Dallas Cup.
This past season, Fulham Under-18s won their second consecutive U-18 Premier League title, defeating Reading in the final, 3-0. Hyndman had one assist in the final.
What do you think of this news? Do you see Hyndman as a future star on the U.S. Under-20s?
