“He is a box-to-box midfielder who covers every blade of grass,” explained Glens Academy coach David Lowry to Belfast Live.

“He is powerful and quick, and his range of passing is first class. He also knows when to pick a pass, and then he delivers it with precision. He ticks so many boxes as a footballer.


“All the young lads are very grounded and have the right attitude. That can take you a long way in football.


“Charlie epitomises all that, and that’s why he is rated so highly by Glentoran and Rangers. He has the potential to go very far, and he has a good family behind him.

“He did really well in last night’s game. He showed a few nice touches and played some good passes. Hopefully, he gets another chance in the first team this season.”
