Fulham

Parker challenges Elliott to step up

18th April 2019, 16:15 by Bobbie Jackson

Fulham teenager Harvey Elliott could be handed the opportunity to impress in the first team next term, according to Scott Parker.

The 16-year-old has been on the fringes of the senior side this term and was named on the bench for the 2-0 win over Everton last weekend.

He became Fulham's youngster player after making his debut against Millwall in the Carabao Cup aged 15 and appears to have a bright future.

Parker believes Elliott has plenty to offer and has hinted he could be involved more heavily in the Championship next term.

The caretaker boss has also challenged Steven Sessegnon and Marlon Fossey to force their way into the first-team picture.

Parker said: "Harvey has got unbelievable talent.

"Ultimately it will be down to him, how hard he works and how quickly he can make that transition to men's football.

"This club need players like Harvey, Steven Sessegnon and Marlon Fossey, and we are looking towards involving them more."
