Although only 17 years of age and only in his first season as a professional, any Alex fan will already be familiar with Garratt. One from the academy's "golden age group", Garratt has been a regular feature in the England U-17 squad alongside Nick Powell and Max Clayton. Unlike Powell and Clayton, the Shrewsbury born stopper has not yet made his professional debut, although he featured on the first team bench on numerous occasions last season.

It's unlikely we'll be seeing much of Garratt in the coming season either. Dario has already said he would rather the youngster was getting regular football in the Under-18s than be sat on the bench every Saturday for the first team. Dario has however admitted that he would have no qualms about putting Garratt in the team if injuries forced his hand and having already claimed Garratt to potentially be one of the best 'keepers the club has produced, we can be sure of seeing plenty of Garratt in the coming years.
