Will the last 18-year-old out the door at Cobham please turn off the lights?

That’s a massive exaggeration, but there are a fair few making the choice to leave this summer in search supposedly greener first-team pathways, and that latest in that line is young Myles Peart-Harris, who today joined nearby Brentford for an undisclosed fee (presumably fairly small; think £1-2m). The recently promoted Bees, back in the top division for the first time in three-quarters of a century, agreed a four-year deal with the midfielder, with a club option for a fifth.

West London-born Peart-Harris (Chelsea profile says Isleworth, i.e. TW7 while Brentford’s tweet claims Twickenham, i.e. TW1 or TW2) joined Chelsea at age 8 and like many, worked his way up the age ranks steadily, overcoming a major injury in his mid-teens to star for both the U18s and the U23s. He finished as the Development Squad’s joint-top goalscorer last season (11 goals in 23 appearances).

Now he will continue his development at Brentford, and we can only wish him the best of luck.
