Dominic Ballard Biography

Last updated 19 Apr 2023
Joined Southampton: May 2013
Southampton Debut: 23rd August 2022, Cambridge 0-3 Saints

Dom has been at Southampton since the age of eight and has risen through the ranks alongside a core group of players in his age group.

Scoring goals throughout his journey in the Academy system, the talented young striker has also represented England at Under-17 and Under-18 level in recent years.

He enjoyed a breakthrough campaign as a key part of the Under-18s Premier League South title-winning team in the 2021/22 season, whilst he also featured several times for the B team on the way to signing his first professional contract.

In the 2022/23 season, Dom caught the eye of first team staff and was handed his professional debut in the Carabao Cup as a second half substitute against Cambridge, where he scored his first senior goal to cap off the occasion.

He became the club’s fifth-youngest goalscorer and ninth-youngest player, before returning to the Academy sides where he continued to find the back of the net in all competitions.

Dom has made one further first team appearance this season, in the FA Cup Fifth Round against Grimsby Town, as well as earning two player of the month nominations in Premier League 2.
