So in total from these 25 teams there’s 450 English Under 21 players. That’s a great number of footballers and with the wins in the Under 20 & Under 17 World Cups we now know there’s some great quality coming through. It’s the same issue year on year but fingers crossed now we will see youngsters getting the chances they need to play and develop as the upside for a number of these players is very high indeed. Hopefully it will be a good couple of years for the vast majority of these young English footballers.

 

 

Free Agents – Nov 2017

 

 

There’s under two months left before the transfer window re-opens yet there’s still a pool of free agents out there. From the list I published in September, a fair few have signed for clubs but there’s still footballers available should they be needed. Does your club need anyone?

 

 

Free Agents

 

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

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, Ryan McGivern, Aymen Belaid, Julien Palmieri, Florian Marange, Essaid Belkalem, Silvio, Ryan Taylor

Mid – Kieran Richardson, Dale Jennings, Tom Hateley, Jan Kirchhoff, Danny Guthrie, Youssouf Mulumbu, Kris Commons, Mathieu Flamini, Carlos De Pena, Aidy White, Giles Coke, Aaron Kuhl, Lee Williamson, Chris Dawson, Modou Sougou, Mark Davies, Jerome Thomas, Franck Moussa, Victor Ayala, Patrick Ebert, Ukra, Andrei Prepelita, Ashkan Dejagah, Nigel Reo-Coker, Oscar Gobern

Gk – Will Henry

Def – James Justin, Chris Camwell, Cole Kpekawa, Kane Vincent-Young, Cameron James, Perry Ng, Aaron McGowan, Patrick Brough, James Gibbons, Nathan Smith

Mid – Hiram Boateng, Jack Stacey, Tom Conlon, Jodi Jones, Devon Kelly-Evans, Harry Anderson, Courtney Senior, Brad Walker, George Cooper, Callum Ainley, Ryan Wintle, Tom Lowery, Reece Brown, Charlie Cooper, Joe Rowley

For – George Maris, Dan Turner, Delial Brewster, Jordan Ponticelli

 

 

Here’s thirty of the brightest England Under 21 players playing in League Two. I’ve only included players signed to League Two clubs and not loan players. The best thing for all of these footballers is they get a chance to play and learn their trade in this division. The worry can be that no one scouts it properly but footballers playing first team football have to believe it will happen and take their chances when they come. Hopefully one or two of this thirty could make the Premier League one day. You never do know in football.

 

England Under 17/18 – Strength in Depth

 

 

With the England Under 17’s doing so well and in the semi-final of the Under 17 World Cup, I wanted to illustrate the strength in depth of this 2000 born age group. Here’s the 21 man squad that was named and taken to the current Under 17 World Cup in India

 

 

Gk – Curtis Anderson, Josef Bursik, Billy Crellin

Def – Marc Guehi, Joel Latibeaudiere, Steven Sessegnon, Timothy Eyoma, Lewis Gibson, Jonathan Panzo

Mid – George McEachran, Nya Kirby, Angel Gomes, Tashan Oakley-Boothe, Morgan Gibbs-White, Conor Gallagher

For – Emile Smith-Rowe, Jadon Sancho, Rhian Brewster, Phil Foden, Daniel Loader, Callum Hudson-Odoi

 

 

Now obviously that’s a very good group of players who’ve so far performed very well to reach the semi finals. To add to these 21 players, here’s an 18 man team with substitutes of 2000 born players whom England did not need to call upon for the World Cup Squad.

 

  1. Thomas McGill
  2. Kane Wilson
  3. Jake Vokins
  4. Oliver Skipp
  5. Brooklyn Lyons-Foster
  6. Zech Medley
  7. Aidan Barlow
  8. Rekeem Harper
  9. Jordan Greenidge
  10. Matthew O’Riley
  11. Ryan Sessegnon

 

Subs – A.Cull(Gk), T.Hinds, I.Poveda, A.Denny, T.Richards, R.Griffiths, S.Walker

 

 

Now there’s some very good players in this 18. Wilson & Harper have already made first team appearances for West Brom. Ryan Sessegnon is playing for the England Under 19’s whilst his team mate Matthew O’Riley has played for Fulham this season. Aidan Barlow went to the Under 17 Euros whilst Oliver Skipp has played excellently for Tottenham in the Uefa Youth League this season.

There’s some real depth to this age group and with them being so young there’s still plenty of time for the late developing 2000 born players to emerge. It’s great to see so many good players coming through and bodes very well for England’s future. First there’s a small matter of the Under 17 World. Hope England can win it. They just need two wins to do so.

30 England Under-21 Players from League One 2017-18

 

 

Gk – Ted Smith, Myles Boney, Billy Crellin

Def – Ezri Konsa, Ryan Nyambe, Matthew Clarke, Jack Whatmough, Ben Purrington, Callum Brittain, Niall Mason, Scott Wharton, Andy Cannon, Lewis Butroid, George Edmundson

Mid – Ryan Ledson, Jermaine Anderson, Willem Tomlinson, Alex Kiwomya, Anthony Hartigan, Oliver Rathbone, Hakeeb Adelakun, Adam May, Daniel Adshead, Ben Close

For – Karlan Ahearne-Grant, Conor Chaplin, Omari Patrick, Joe Nuttall, Idris Kanu, Liam Mandeville

 

 

Here’s thirty of the brightest England Under 21 players playing in League One. I’ve only included footballers signed with League One clubs and not loan players. What’s interesting is where these players will end up in the future. Last season’s list included the likes of Ade Lookman & Aaron Ramsdale who since been signed for Premier League teams. It’s pretty clear that scouts from Premier League & Championship clubs will be looking at these players as possibly signings for the future. Being Under 21 players means they have time on their side and they are bound to get game time in League One so hopefully one or two of these players could be the next Dele Alli and can go all the way to the top of English football.

50 England Under-21 Players in the Championship 2017/18

 

 

Gk – Harry Burgoyne, Luke Southwood

Def – James Bree, Josh Dacres-Cogley, Rico Henry, Taylor Moore, Farrend Rawson, Max Lowe, Dael Fry, Joe Worrall, Max Clark, Easah Suliman, Zak Vyner, Josh Earl, Steven Sessegnon, Lloyd Kelly, Tennai Watson, Josh Emmanuel

Mid – Teddy Bishop, Andre Dozzell, Ronaldo Vieira, Harrison Chapman, James Maddison, Matty Cash, Morgan Gibbs-White, Ryan Sessegnon, Flynn Downes, Elliot Embleton, Will Miller, Tayo Edun, Matt O’Riley, Tristan Nydam, Fred Onyedinma, Callum Cooke, Ben Godfrey, Louis Reed

For – Rushian Hepburn-Murphy, Andre Green, Che Adams, Mason Bennett, Jarrod Bowen, Tyler Walker, Ben Brereton, George Hirst, Josh Maja, Donovan Wilson, Keinan Davis, Marcus Tavernier, Danny Loader, Bright Osayi-Samuel

 

 

There’s some very good young talent floating about in the Championship. It’s definitely the league to be in if you are a young player as you’ll get chances to play. A fair few of these youngsters have already played for England’s youth teams and will continue to do so. Here’s a composite team of these Under 21 footballers.

 

  1. Harry Burgoyne
  2. James Bree
  3. Rico Henry
  4. Tayo Edun
  5. Dael Fry
  6. Joe Worrall
  7. Ryan Sessegnon
  8. James Maddison
  9. Jarrod Bowen
  10. Keinan Davis
  11. Andre Green

 

 

This is an exciting team and Premier League scouts will be watching these players over the course of this season to see how they can push on & improve. It’s an exciting set of footballers and hopefully they can do well this season and beyond. The future still looks pretty good for youngsters playing for Championship clubs as the development pathways aren’t so blocked and it’s going to be very interesting to see how these fifty players can develop over the next few years.
