Campbell to use loan experience to aid first-team push

Youngster spent time at Kidderminster and Yeovil

ALBION teenager Tahvon Campbell is confident the lessons he learned while out on loan in 2015/16 will prove beneficial next season.

The pacey forward, who is also comfortable in wide areas, made 15 appearances for National League side Kidderminster Harries between August and October, before going on to join League Two outfit Yeovil Town in January for the remainder of the campaign.

Campbell played 18 times for the Glovers, helping to steer them away from the dreaded drop into non-league thanks to some impressive displays.

After a successful year, which started with a trip to Austria with the first-team in pre-season, the youngster is keen to make further strides towards securing a spot in the senior squad.

“My loan spell with Yeovil was a fantastic experience for me and I really enjoyed it,” said Campbell.

“When I first arrived the club wasn’t in a good place and they were towards the bottom of the table.

“I feel happy and proud to have played a part in helping Yeovil secure safety.

“Senior football is so much different to Under-21 and academy football.

“It’s important that young players like myself experience it because you have to learn how to deal with the physical aspect of the game, as well as the need to win on a Saturday.

“I feel as though I have learnt a lot from my loans at both Kidderminster and Yeovil and I am confident that if I had the chance to go out on loan again, I would be able to make a big impact and score some goals.

“I’m going to work really hard now over the summer so that I am fit and sharp for the start of pre-season.

“Hopefully I will get the opportunity to go away again on tour with the first-team.

“I want to try and use my experience from being out on loan to stick around the first-team this season.

“Like every other young player at this club, my aim is to play in the Premier League for Albion.”
