Currently Active Footballers with Merseyside Origins


Recommended Posts

Truthfully, our club has had a shocking record producing local players for the first team since Steven Gerrard made his debut in 1998, with only TAA become a first team regular for us in that time.  Wheareas Everton have had a few first team contributors from the area in that time of varying quality.

But I was curious to see how Merseyside as a region has stacked up against other regions for producing talent since that time.  From memory the England team at the last World Cup had a few guys from Yorkshire, while London seems to be the origin point for some of the better younger talent in the England set-up.  There seems to be a few players from Manchester performing at premier league standard as well.

Off the top of my head, these are some of the players getting games at the top level:

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
Curtis Jones (Liverpool)

Leighton Baines (Everton)
Tom Davies (Everton)
Anthony Gordon (Everton)

Jonjoe Kenny also appears to have played 31 games on loan at Schalke, which is a big club in an elite league.

Others:

John Lundstram (Sheffield United)
Jack Robinson (Sheffield United)
Connor Coady (Wolves)
Scott Dann (Crystal Palace)
Ross Barkley (Everton)
Aaron Creswell (West Ham)
 

That's ten players playing at the top level, and some decent talent.  If they played a wing-back formation they'd give anyone a game.  Are there any that I've missed?

How does that stack up against other regions?  Can someone English make lists for London, Manchester, the North East, Yorkshire etc. and see how our club's region compares?

I've done enough for now, frankly.
