City on Brooks:
David Brooks was awarded a two year scholarship at the Academy in July 2013 after showing his technical ability through the age groups.
A talented playmaker who can set up chances for others, David can also play in a no.9 role and provide the goals himself, such as a beautiful chip against Bristol City in October 2013.
It’s no surprise that Brooks models himself on David Silva – the youngster’s low centre of gravity, superior technical quality, good vision and eye for gaps in opposition defences make David a valuable asset.
Part of the City Academy since the age of eight, the pint-sized playmaker was a member of the 2012 Lion City Cup Squad, and more recently travelled to Abu Dhabi with the u17s in 2014.
