Sporting talent often seems to run in the family – and that is certainly the case for talented young footballing siblings Lauren and Reece James.

The duo have been impressing on the pitch for Manchester United Women and Chelsea respectively, and their father Nigel runs a very successful football academy himself.

Speaking of successful academies, Reece is one of several Chelsea graduates who has broken into the first team this season – in his case after a string of impressive displays during a loan spell at Wigan last term.

The 20-year-old told Sky Sports: “This season was slow getting started, because I was injured at the start.

“But, as I found my rhythm and the season has gone on, I think my performances have picked up.

“I think it’s great that loads of players I played with coming through the academy are now in the first team as well.
