Flying teenage winger Todd Miller has been given a first team call-up for this weekend's game at Exeter.
Todd, who is still in Year 11 at secondary school, has travelled with the first team squad for this weekend's game at Exeter City after impressing in the U's U23s.
Despite only having turned 16 in October, Todd has played eighteen times in the U's U23s team and has caught the eye of Head Coach John McGreal.
John, who has given a number of Academy graduates their chance since taking charge as U's boss, said: "We've watched him regularly in the U23s and he's shown good pace down the wings, and is developing with every game.
"The fact he has played for the U23s at 15 or 16 speaks volumes about how well he's been doing and he's getting himself a big reputation at the club - and from further afield, too.
"I really like what I see from him. He can play both sides, is direct when he gets the ball and his decision making is excellent for his age.
"We've never been afraid to give young players their chance to be around the first team and Todd's inclusion is fully merited."
Todd will take squad number 47.
