Liverpool winger Harry Wilson is one of six players to have been nominated for a special award. The award will recognise the best player in the Under-21’s equivalent of the Premier League, in which we finished second.
The 18-year-old played in all but four of our 22 fixtures, scoring six goals in the process, including this beauty against Everton…
Wilson signed his first professional contract with Liverpool last summer and has enjoyed an excellent first campaign with our second string, underlining his reputation as a big name of the future.
Already a full-Welsh international, having won his first cap in 2013, the left winger will now be aiming to make the step up into Brendan Rodgers’ first-team next season.
The other candidates for the award, as confirmed by the Premier League’s official website, are Dominic Solanke (Chelsea), Duncan Watmore (Sunderland), Ange-Freddy Plumain (Fulham), Ryan Seager (Southampton) and Daniel Crowley (Arsenal).
We’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of fine players come out of our academy in recent years – most notably Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe – so here’s hoping that Wilson will now become another name to add to that list.
