Lookman Wins Apprentice Of The Year Award

Tiago Esteves reflects on Ademola Lookman’s successful night at this year’s Football League Awards.

Despite a rollercoaster year, one of Charlton’s positives this season was first team player, Ademola Lookman’s triumph at the Football League Awards on Sunday.

The 18 year old was named the Championship’s LFE Apprentice of the Year after being recognised for his work on an off the pitch. Lookman has adapted well into the first team, but it’s his work-rate at school that really clinched the award for him.

The Charlton forward has established himself at the club and made tremendous progression since his move to the club in May 2014. Within his first season he impressed with the U18’s with 17 goals in 28 appearances – which earned him a promotion to the top team.

Now established in the first team, the youngster will have to adapt to life in League One with the Addicks, unless he’s picked up by another rival club.
