A defender by trade, Femi totaled 26 appearances in the U18 Premier League and scored one goal, and also represented West Brom in the FA Youth Cup and U18 Premier League Cup.


He scored his only goal for West Brom against Fulham on the final day of the 2022-2023 U18 Premier League season.

Despite spending four months on the sidelines, Ajayi was able to make 25 appearances in all competitions over the course of the 2022-2023 season.
