Fenton is one of many exciting talents developing at The Hawthorns.
An attacking midfielder who can play in any advanced position across the pitch, Heard's close control and forward-thinking style made him a valuable part of Peter Gilbert's Under-18s during the 2021/22 campaign.
His first year as a scholar saw him make over 20 appearances under Gilbert, proving his worth in the attacking third with double-figure goal involvements. In addition to this, Fenton featured a handful of times for Albion's PL2 side under Richard Beale the same season.
Important experiences working under Beale in the 23s will only serve Heard well heading into his final year as a scholar, and he will be looking to bring on his game further by gaining more opportunities at a higher level.
