50 1997 born English Footballers



50 1997 born English Footballers



Gk – Freddie Woodman, Dean Henderson

Def – Joe Gomez, Callum Connolly, Taylor Moore, Jake Clarke-Salter, Max Lowe, Tosin Adarabioyo, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jonjoe Kenny, Dael Fry, James Bree, Cameron Borthwick-Johnson, Fikayo Tomori, Axel Tuanzebe, Rico Henry, Joe Worrall, Demetri Mitchell, Ezri Konsa, Elliot Moore, Brandon Mason, Anton Walkes

Mid – Josh Onomah, Ryan Ledson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Liam Walsh, Josh Sims, Lewis Cook, Jordan Rossiter, Connor Mahoney, Kieran Dowell, Dan Crowley, Ovie Ejaria, Harrison Chapman, Harvey Barnes, Matty Cash, Hamza Choudhury, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Aaron Nemane, George Dobson

For – Patrick Roberts, Izzy Brown, Dominic Solanke, Adam Armstrong, Sheyi Ojo, Tammy Abraham, Marcus Rashford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman, Karlan Ahearne-Grant



If ever one year group could be called a Golden generation it’s these 1997 born players. They won the Under 17 Euros they were involved in and then this last summer they won the Under 20 world cup even though they were shorn of the likes of Gomez, Roberts & Abraham. This is such a strong group of players.

What’s really good is that already many of these players are getting game time at different levels of football. Of course the big thing is making sure they get the right game time continually for the next two or three seasons so players can learn and develop but the initial signs are very positive.

Here’s a composite team of these 1997 born English footballers:-


  1. Freddie Woodman
  2. Jonjoe Kenny
  3. Kyle Walker-Peters
  4. Ainsley Maitland-Niles
  5. Joe Gomez
  6. Fikayo Tomori
  7. Patrick Roberts
  8. Lewis Cook
  9. Tammy Abraham
  10. Dominic Solanke
  11. Marcus Rashford


This is a very strong team. Already four of these players have played for England, Eight have appeared in the Premier League this season and Patrick Roberts has appeared in the Champions League group stages for Celtic. Then you have the players not in this team like Dominic Calvert-Lewin & Ademola Lookman. There’s some really good players waiting in the wings. It’s going to be fascinating to see how this year group evolves over the next few seasons but they are already making their mark and I see no good reason why that won’t continue as these players develop.

This season’s competition is much stronger than the English teams efforts in 2016/17 and it’s reflected with all five teams progressing beyond the group stage. All the English teams qualified despite them losing English players for England victorious Under 17 World Cup campaign which is also very impressive. I must also mention Jadon Sancho as he played in the Uefa Youth League this season for Dortmund.

Here’s a composite team of English Players who’ve appeared in this season’s tournament


  1. Dan Grimshaw
  2. Reece James
  3. Demeaco Duhaney
  4. George Marsh
  5. Trevoh Chalobah
  6. RoShaun Williams
  7. Dujon Sterling
  8. Tashan Oakley-Boothe
  9. Kazaiah Sterling
  10. Marcus Edwards
  11. Phil Foden


Subs – Jamie Cumming(gk), Rhian Brewster, Callum Hudson-Odoi, George McEachran, Jacob Davenport, Tyrell Warren, Curtis Jones


This is a pretty useful team and is made up of lots of young England internationals. After England’s Under 17 World Cup win it’s going to be very interesting to see how these players kick on and develop. For the first time ever there’s so much confidence emanating from England’s young footballers and the sky’s the limit if they can go on and fulfil their potential in the years to come.


Free Agents – Dec 2017



Less than a month now until the transfer window opens. Still plenty of free agents out there. It’s unlikely that many of these players will get picked off before January but you never know. Here’s a selection of possible players. Who does your team need?



Free Agents


Gk – Ross Turnbull, Will Puddy, Chris Kettings, Hugo Ventura, Matt Jones, Thomas Vincensini

Def – Seb Bassong, Joleon Lescott, Benoit Tremoulinas, Juan Rafael Fuentes, Callam Jones, Kelvin Wilson, Bacary Sagna, Sam Westley, Adam Henley, Joel Ekstrand, Stephen Kelly, Lewin Nyatanga, Matty Templeton, Reece Wabara, Lewis Buxton, Bob Harris, Aymen Belaid, Florian Marange, Essaid Belkalem, Silvio, Ryan Taylor, Ousmane Viera, Jordan Mustoe

For – Jose Antonio Reyes, Giuseppe Rossi, Matty Fryatt, Dexter Blackstock, Ishmael Miller, Rai Simons, Ruud Boymans, Carlton Cole, Mirko Vucinic, Alex Nimely, David N’Gog




50 1996 born English Footballers



50 1996 born English Footballers



Gk – Angus Gunn, Harry Burgoyne, Jake Eastwood, Ted Smith

Def – Ben Chilwell, Mason Holgate, Brendan Galloway, Reece Burke, Ashley Smith-Brown, Farrend Rawson, Joe Riley, Josh Dacres-Cogley, Max Clark, Connor Ogilvie, Cohen Bramall, Myles Kenlock, Jordan Thorniley, Sid Nelson

Mid – Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Charlie Colkett, Dele Alli, Ryan Kent, Brandon Barker, Kasey Palmer, Cameron Brannagan, Teddy Bishop, Joe Williams, Kean Bryan, Matthew Willock, Devonte Redmond, Jake Hesketh, Harry Winks, Will Miller, James Maddison, James Harrison, Fred Onyedinma, Jermain Anderson, Jack Stacey, Rees Greenwood, Callum Guy

For – Jerome Sinclair, Ivan Toney, Demarai Gray, Alex Gilliead, Che Adams, Mason Bennett, Jarrod Bowen, Tyler Walker, Ryan Seager, Dom Telford



These 1996 born players are in their final year of being Under 21’s so from next season they’ll have to fight to get into the Premier League 25 man Squads. There’s been quite a turnover from this fifty but there’s some good footballers in this group and hopefully more of them will kick on over the next couple of years.

From the last list of this group that I published in March 2016, 70% of the players are the same whilst 30% have changed. That means 15 players effectively falling away to be replaced with other up and coming players who’ve emerged in the last 18 months. That’s a reflection of how youth development works with winners and losers.

The first group of these 1996 born English players I published was in September 2014. Of those players only 25 still remain on this list. That reflects players falling down the leagues as well as those who change nationality. It also reflect how things change from the ages of 18 to 21. If you don’t get the right development opportunities you can fall out of the game in an instant.

Lets looks at a sample team of these 1996 born English Players.


  1. Angus Gunn
  2. Mason Holgate
  3. Ben Chilwell
  4. Harry Winks
  5. Brendan Galloway
  6. Reece Burke
  7. Demarai Gray
  8. Ruben Loftus-Cheek
  9. Jarrod Bowen
  10. Dele Alli
  11. Kasey Palmer


This is a very good side made up of a midfield trio of England players. What’s been good about this 1996 age group from the very start is that the best of these players are very good indeed. With the likes of Alli, Loftus-Cheek & Winks we’ll hopefully be seeing that over the next ten years or so as they players improve and mature before reaching their peak hopefully still with England and with success in the International arena.
