A neat finisher who came through the club's Centre of Excellence in Lisburn in his native Northern Ireland.

Capable of scoring goals with either foot, the level-headed youngster has represented his country at schoolboy level in the Victory Shield.

Coming from a proud family of United supporters, Croskery has been praised for his strong work ethic and desire to improve. Still developing, he is a good finisher in and around the box but is working on other areas of his game such as playing with his back to goal and bringing his team-mates into play.

Showed a measure of his confidence by convincing dead-ball expert and team captain Andreas Pereira to allow him to take a free-kick during the Milk Cup, finding the net against Co Antrim in style.
