Callum Kyle Harriott (born 4 March 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays for Reading as a winger. He is a product of the Charlton Athletic academy.

Career[edit]

Charlton Athletic[edit]

Born in Norbury, Harriott attended Stanley Technical High School and St.Andrews C of E high school in Croydon. He made his debut for the Addicks on 25 April 2011 in a League One game against Rochdale at The Valley, which ended in a 3–1 win for Charlton. He came on as a late substitute for loanee Dean Parrett.[3] He then started his first game for the club two days later on the last game of the 2010–11 season against Hartlepool.[4]

Although he did not feature for the Charlton first-team in their 2011–12 promotion season, he made his Championship debut after coming off the bench as a 74th-minute substitute for fellow academy graduate Scott Wagstaff in a 2–1 win against Blackpool.[5] He then scored his first senior goal on 9 March 2013, in a 1–0 win away to Huddersfield Town.[6] He scored his second goal for Charlton in a record-breaking 6–0 away win for the Addicks against nine-man Barnsley on 13 April 2013.[7] Harriott was one of the six different scorers for Charlton that match.[7] On 17 May 2013, Harriott signed a new three-year contract with the club.[8] On 3 May 2014, Harriott scored his first senior hat-trick against Blackpool in a 3-0 win at Bloomfield Road.[9]

On 28 August 2015, Harriott was loaned to Colchester United where he was very well received by fans, before returning to Charlton on 2 January 2016.[10][11]

Reading[edit]

On 5 August 2016, Harriott signed a three-year contract with Reading, moving for an undisclosed fee.[12] He scored his first goals for Reading when he scored a brace in an EFL Cup tie against Milton Keynes Dons which Reading won 4-3 on penalties on 23 August 2016.[13]

International career[edit]

On 2 May 2013, Harriott was named in manager Noel Blake's England under-19 team to face Belgium, Georgia and Scotland in the 2013 UEFA European Under-19 qualification round.[14] Harriott is eligible to play for the Guyana national football team.[15]
