Di'Shon Bernard,


An imposing centre-back who was formerly with FA Youth Cup holders Chelsea.

The defender spent some time at the Aon Training Complex on trial around the turn of the year and impressed sufficiently to earn a move to Manchester. Bernard enjoyed a decent run in the Under-18s side over the course of the 2017/18 season, making nine appearances in all competitions and was a regular starter towards back-end of the league campaign. The 17-year old centre-back was included in Kieran McKenna's squad for the Dallas Cup tournament in the USA. Bernard scored in an 8-0 thrashing of Higashi Fukuoka, before the Reds were knocked out in the semi-finals by Arsenal. He also started the national final against his former club Chelsea.
