Wales youth international Ollie is developing into an exciting talent for the Baggies. 

Ollie was born in Kingston, London, prior to relocating to Lichfield with his family at an early stage of his life - which is how he caught the eyes Albion's youth staff. 

Bostock joined the academy setup in B71 as a six-year-old and has risen through the ranks since in pursuit of his professional goal.

An attacker, who can play across all of the attacking positions centrally or out wide, Bostock has captained Wales at U17s level as recently as August 2023 and is a player who makes things happen in the final third. 

Ollie played plenty of minutes in Leigh Downing's U18s while still an U16 during the 2022/23 season, and those promising performances earned him a scholarship at The Hawthorns in June 2023. 

Bostock featured in the U21s during the 23/24 campaign and impressed, settling into a higher age group at just 16-years-old. Due to the academy's recent shift in focus giving youngsters more chances at higher age groups, he will hope those opportunities to continue as he looks to become the next talent to push into the senior fold.
