Fellows took the the next step in his development when he joined Sky Bet League Two side Crawley Town on deadline day.
Following his season loan move to Sussex in September 2022, Tom played plenty of senior minutes - making 38 appearances to help the Reds retain their fourth-tier status.
Tom benefitted from regular training sessions with the first team under Valérien Ismaël and Steve Bruce, with the attacker making the first-team bench in the league after impressing during his first start in the senior side against Arsenal back in August.
Along with Taylor Gardner-Hickman, Fellows made a big impression on the senior coaching staff - making six appearances over the 2021/22 campaign including his first league start for the first team against Cardiff City in January 2022. But the energetic academy graduate gained most of his game time in the PL2 side over the course of the season.
The versatile forward, who’s been at the club since joining at Under-10s, enjoyed a prolific and effective 2020/21 season for Albion’s 18s side in the U18 Premier League and during their FA Youth Cup journey.
Fellows enjoyed a free-scoring start to 2021, scoring four goals in as many matches between January and February to help the young Baggies go on an unbeaten run. And the forward proved to be a big-game player in Albion’s FA Youth Cup campaign.
Fellows netted twice against Spurs to help Albion to a 5-0 FA Youth Cup win in the capital and send them to the quarter-finals.
The attacker also benefitted from exposure in the Baggies' PL2 team towards the end of the 2020/21 season, and Tom continued his development during his first full term with the 23s over the 2021/22 campaign.
