We had TWO 15-year-olds start the game - centre-back Freddie Simmonds also started.
I’ve see on various social media that HH is more highly rated than his cousin.

Having seen those halfway line goals by our current 1st team wonderkid when he was a lad, I find that almost impossible to believe.

Thoughts?

I don't have any thoughts, seeing as the only time I have seen Harry Howell in action was the 3 or 4 minutes he played on Tuesday (plus half-heartedly watching a stream of an England U-16 match).

Doubt anyone posting on social media has seen much of him in either training or matches.

My son is the same age and has played against quite a lot of the u16’s. Sounds like a really strong group. The hottest prospect was Shim Mhueka, who left and went to Chelsea. He’s been in their u18’s for a while and the England set up.

Harry Howell and Freddie Simmonds are the next most highly rated from what I hear. seem them both play a couple of times. Harry is great on the ball. Huge football intelligence for a young player. He’s grown up around football. Both play for England.

After those two you have Tyler Silsby, an attacking player who usually plays off the left, cutting inside. He’s also featured for England recently. Adam Brett’s a left footed striker who’s in the Welsh squad. Jess Middleton is another one to look out for. CDM with a great technique. He’s a bit like Hinshelwood, can play in multiple positions.

Shim’s brother is half decent as well. Believe he’s still with us.

We have a number of "first team" U21s missing (Hinchy, Cahill, O' Mahony, Duffus, Kavanagh, Barrington, BBB) and are playing 15 year olds! Presumably some of the U21s must have been taken to Dubai?
Nine (9) U21 'first teamers' are away in Dubai with the first team. Add to that those out on loan in the EFL, and considering that those that played yesterday did a bloody impressive job! And the U18s still won their match earlier yesterday with at least two of their top players unavailable due to them filling gaps in the U21s.

Impressive or what?
