Charles Banya played as a left winger at Fulham throughout the academy from 2006 until his release in 2014. Small in stature, Charles was always highly thought of at the club and enjoyed success in both the Under-18 squad and the Under-21 squad. His sole appearance in the first team's matchday squad came in November 2013, where he was on the bench in a league match away at Stoke.

CareerEdit

Before FulhamEdit

Charles was spotted while taking part in a six-a-side tournament at Motspur Park; the quiet yet determined youngster quickly established himself as a bright prospect for the Whites.

Fulham (2006-2014)Edit

Charles was signed by Fulham as a schoolboy aged just 12.

The U21 winger, who was also a student from the Club’s successful Coombe School programme, has regularly turned heads as a result of his pace, excellent close control and effortless ability to beat his marker.

Year after year, Banya has made progress, with Martin Jol also talking positively about the player’s talent. So much so, Banya’s recent development was rewarded with a place on the First team bench for Fulham’s trip to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City in November 2012.

After struggling to find a consistent place in the U21 squad during 2013-14, he was sent on loan to Woking for a few months. Upon his return he struggled with injury and only made a further handful of appearances for the U21's before the season close.

He was released in the summer of 2014 along with many of the senior squad, and Charles left the club without making a first team appearance.

After FulhamEdit

Charles was signed by Crawley Town in August 2014 on a short-term contract following a trial at the club.
