Liverpool academy, largely revamped by Rafael Benitez have seen quality youngsters emerging in recent years, with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Jon Flanagan making the senior grades already. 

Rodgers will be definitely keeping a close eye on the central defender and may send him on loan to further his progress. 

“It’s such a great honour to receive this award and it was fantastic for it to be presented to me by the manager,” said the youngster. 

“I would like to thank the Irish FA for recognising me and helping me to develop my future in football and I would also like to thank Lucan United, who gave me great support and a great grounding from which to start my career.”
