Will Greenidge first came to the attention of West Ham United supporters when he impressed in a Premier League International Cup tie with Portuguese giants Benfica in November 2017, aged just 15.
The full-back featured seven times in U18 Premier League South in 2017/18 while still a schoolboy, debuting at home to Southampton on 19 August 2017, before signing his scholarship in summer 2018.
The following campaign, Greenidge added a further 15 appearances at that level to his name, before injury curtailed his progress.
A consistent and conscientious defender, Greenidge's first taste of senior football arrived as a 17-year-old when he started the U21s' 5-4 EFL Trophy win over Newport County in September 2019.
His dependability saw him start all but one of the U18s' fixtures in 2019/20, leading to him signing his first professional contract in summer 2020.
