The Championship is a fertile breeding ground which has produced some of the best players in the country and the current crop of youngsters looks set to continue that trend. Texaco FC ambassador Fenners takes a look into the future of the npower Championship and selects his 5 players to watch in 2012
Mason Bennett - Derby - The England U16 & 17 International forward is the youngest ever player to appear in Derby`s 1st XI. Having made his debut at 15years & 99days, Bennett looks set to play many more times for Derby and maybe England too.
Nathan Redmond - Birmingham - Redmond`s few appearances for The Blues this season have seen him linked with a big money move to Man City and Chris Hughton has sought to keep his feet on the ground and hopefully in the 2nd City.
Marvin Sordell - Watford - The Hornets continue to produce some of the best young attacking talent in the country. Following quickly (literally) in Ashley Young`s footsteps, Marvin Sordell is already established as Watford`s leading front man and their form is improving as quick as Sordell`s ability.
Wilfried Zaha - Crystal Palace - Zaha has proved that he`s a man for the big occasion, putting in an outstanding performance at Old Trafford as Palace won through the League Cup Semi-Final. Zaha has signed a new 3-year contract at Selhurst Park so Palace fans will be seeing a lot more of him.
Joe Bennett - Middlesbrough - The only defender in our list, Joe Bennett has now played over 50 times for Boro and has also earned himself a place in the England U21 side. Tony Mowbray deploys Bennett as an 'Ashley Cole style` left-back and if he can come close to Cole he`s got a good career ahead of him.
