Liam Walsh 52

Liam Walsh was just five years old when he joined Everton Academy. He is a central midfielder who is comfortable on the ball with a great range of passing and is dangerous from set-piece situations.

He scooped the Club’s 2013-14 Academy Goal of the Season award for a well-rehearsed strike for the Under-16s side in a fixture away at Manchester United.

Walsh, who names Xavi as his role model, is eligible to play for both England and Italy.

Liam Walsh has put pen to paper on his first professional contract in March 2015, signing on with Everton until 2017, telling the Everton website:

“It's everything that I wanted ever since I started playing football,” he said. “Obviously, signing a professional contract takes me closer to where I want to be which is with the first team. I'm buzzing to sign my first one and hopefully there is many more to come."  

Walsh went on loan with Yeovil Town in January 2016 and received some glowing endorsements from his temporary hosts:

Manager, Darren May: "I think he has made a great impact on the football club as a whole and shows a tenacity about him, ...moving to Yeovil when you’ve been at a Premier League club can be a shock, but he has carried his responsibility like a man and credit to him."

Midfielder Matty Dolan: "He has been a credit to himself since he came in. Yeovil have given him the experience and he is repaying that with his performances. He’s a top quality player and is really highly thought of at Everton."

Liam Walsh returned to Everton for the arrival of the new manager, Ronald Koeman, hoping to attract his attention, and in September he signed a new contract which extended his term to 2019. But a couple of  injuries during the campaign preventing him from stepping up. He was very impressive for the U23s when he regained fitness, however, and was a pivotal force in them winning the Primer League 2.  But he sustained a bad ankle injury before the final game of the season and could only hobble onto the podium to celebrate with his teammates.

The new season saw Walsh fit again and he joined the mass loan-out of future Everton stars, joining Birmingham City in the Championship until January.
