The future looks bright for the next generation of Liverpool players.
The Liverpool coach in charge of the club’s under-9s to under-12s, Mike Yates, has been speaking to the club’s official website about the importance of developing players from a young age.
Yates knows Anfield inside out having been at the club for 24 years, and he took particular pride when he watched a number of the club’s teenage talents playing for the under-21s recently.
Kent was one of the players Yates singled out having watched the 18-year-old winger-cum-forward develop over many years at Liverpool.
Kent, Wilson and Branagan in particular could be closing in on a first-team chance at Liverpool, with all three very highly regarded at the club.
Kent is seen as one of the most talented players to come through the academy for many a year, while Wilson is the youngest player ever to be capped by the senior Welsh side and Brannagan shone for Liverpool All-stars in a recent charity match at Anfield.
As for Maguire and Randall, they are both 19-year-old full-backs with the former playing on the left and the latter on the right.
