The season is almost over but Brooke Norton-Cuffy still has a lot to play for.
Norton-Cuffy’s immediate priority is the Championship play-off final, with his loan club Coventry City set to take on Luton Town at Wembley on Saturday.
Since joining Coventry on loan in January Norton-Cuffy has made 23 appearances, the vast majority of which have come as a right wing-back, and in the main he has given a good account of himself.
The opportunity to play at Wembley is an exciting one and if Coventry succeed in getting promoted to the Premier League then it wouldn’t be a major surprise if he was to return there on loan next season.
Immediately after Coventry’s commitments on Saturday are over Norton-Cuffy will head to Argentina, where he will be part of the England squad at the U20 World Cup.
Norton-Cuffy has missed the start of the tournament but it is hoped that he will still be able to play some part in the competition and achieve further international glory, having won the U19 European Championship last year.
The 19-year-old has yet to be called up to the Arsenal first-team, but that is mainly because he has spent a lot of time on loan, taking in spells at Lincoln City and Rotherham United prior to heading to Coventry.
Whether he will receive an opportunity to break into the senior setup at Arsenal remains to be seen, but Norton-Cuffy has much to focus on in the meantime.
