Jerome Sinclair is Liverpool’s youngest ever player at 16 and six days

26th September 2012

• Striker comes off bench in cup win over West Brom
• Liverpool call him Jordan on their team-sheet

Jerome Sinclair became Liverpool’s youngest ever player when he starred in their 2-1 Capital One Cup victory at West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night.

Sinclair ended the evening happy after Liverpool had inadvertently called him Jordan on the team-sheet, on his return to The Hawthorns where he was part of Albion’s academy before he moved to Anfield a year ago.

The striker, who came off the bench, made his senior debut aged 16 years and six days, supplanting Jack Robinson, who was 244 days older when he made his first Liverpool appearance.

Sinclair made his debut for Liverpool under-18s towards the end of last season, having spent most of the campaign playing for the under-16s. He was a prolific goalscorer in pre-season friendlies for the under-18s, which earned him his chance to step up. © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
