Adam makes his debut for Liverpool first team
Garstang teenage footballer Adam Phillips joined Liverpool FC’s first team line up for the second time as they beat Preston 2-1 in a pre-season friendly at Deepdale on Saturday.
The 16-year-old midfielder had made his senior debut for the Reds three days earlier in a match against Brondby in Denmark.
And Tweeting after his debut he wrote: “Dreams really do come true.”
Phillips who joined the Liverpool Academy at the age of 11, is the youngest member of the clubs squad which travelled to Boston for a short tour on Sunday.
His promotion to the first-team set-up has come after a successful year which has also seen him feature with England’s youth side.
He has just signed a two-year scholarship with Neil Critchley’s Liverpool under 18s side.
Critchley said:“ I’m not surprised that the manager is keen to have a good look at him. He’s a talented lad who can play in a number of positions.
“He played wide right against Brondby, but he can also play centrally.
“He played No 6, No 8 and No 10 for the U18s last season He has a great range of passing and he can score goals. He can do a bit of everything.”
