Maksymilian (or Maks) Boruc joined the Baggies as a 16-year-old.
The Polish stopper started his footballing education in England with fellow West Midlands side Stoke City, but opted to continue his development with Albion in the summer of 2019.
A towering presence between the sticks, the 18-year-old has been a regular in Peter Gilbert’s U18s side while also featuring in Albion’s PL2 team during the 2020/21 campaign.
Maks has been pivotal in the young Baggies’ progression to last-four of the 2020/21 FA Youth Cup. Big saves at crucial stages in games against Cardiff, Tottenham and Everton has seen the Albion youngster keep his side in the ascendency during tournament matches.
“Maks has some great attributes, has made some important saves for us and has grabbed his opportunity with both hands” - 18s boss Peter Gilbert.
