Promising young forward Thierry Nevers joined West Ham United from local club Reading on a three-year contract in June 2021.
Berkshire born and raised, Nevers is an exciting young talent who cites the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar amongst his footballing inspirations – not just for their flair, but their hard-working qualities also.
Typically deployed on the left wing, but equally adept playing through the middle, Nevers became a regular for Reading’s U18s in 2017/18 whilst still a schoolboy.
The promising forward’s Premier League 2 breakthrough subsequently arrived in 2019/20, with Nevers recording four goals and two assists in his first five starts for Reading’s U23s.
Indeed, while spending nine years in the academy system of his local club, Nevers accumulated three seasons’ worth of experience of U23s football with the Royals as a teenager, scoring nine times in 25 appearances in Premier League 2 – including against the Hammers in a 3-3 draw in January 2020.
Nevers' first season in Claret and Blue saw the winger show his attacking prowess, scoring nine times in U23s action.
