Despite our site having Liam Higgins as “:England” he’s been playing in the some of the same Welsh sides (15, u16) as Ryan Astley , Rhys Hughes, and Josh Hosie. I’m not sure if he was playing up or just how his birthday occurred.Thanks for that, any information on Higgins, age, position etc.
For the u18s he’s been mainly left midfield/ left wing, though switching to the right throughout the game . There was one game where it looked like he may have been down as a left back, can’t confirm that though.
While this was seen as an opportunity by Unsworth to try out u18 players like Hughes, Onyango, Quirk they've featured before, and Unsworth has been cagey about bringing through youngsters in the past , he likes to bed them in first, the fact he picked Higgins to play is a big complement. Nice to that Unsworth is giving youngsters a chance, that’s three 1st year Scholars that have featured this season, Higgins, Dobbin and Onyango. From memory in the past few seasons only Astley and Gordon have featured at U23s level while 1st years.
