Brooklyn Genesini


Born in Yeovil, Brooklyn Genesini attended Bucklers Mead Academy and played with the Brazil Soccer School between the ages of six and nine.

When he was eight, he had a life-threatening injury after a steel goal frame fell on his head, forcing it on to a concrete floor. It gave him a lump on his head the size of two golf balls.

Predominantly employed as a right-back or right wing-back, he was one of the most consistent performers as the club's under-18s were crowned EFL Youth Alliance South West champions.

In 2018/19, he helped the under-18s reach the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup and started for the under-21s in their first Central League Cup final win over Notts County.

In January 2020 Genesini was named as a substitute in the club’s fourth round FA Cup tie against Arsenal but has yet to make his senior debut.

The 19-year-old defender signed a new contract in the summer of 2021, after helping the under-21s to the Hampshire Senior Cup and a second Central League Cup two months before.
