Date of birth
Brandon Pierrick signed his first professional contract with the club, on the day of his 18th birthday (10 December).
Pierrick was raised in Brixton, south London, and his family have connections to Cameroon. He has been with the club for just under a decade, and has progressed through the ranks in the Palace Academy from the under-9s team to the under 23s, becoming – in his own words - a “direct, quick and powerful” forward.
He is the only player to start all fifteen U23s game this season, scoring four goals including a hat-trick against Millwall. He also scored a brace in the club’s pre-season friendly with AFC Wimbledon.
