Bobby Duncan scored four of Liverpool’s 10 best goals from the under-18s last season, but two midfielders beat the top-scoring striker to first and second place.
In the league, they finished level on points with champions Derby but below them on goal difference, with the two sides seven points clear of third-placed Everton.
It was an impressive season for Liverpool’s under-19s, too, as they reached the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League only to lose on penalties to Dinamo Zagreb.
Duncan ended the season as top goalscorer for the academy in all age groups, netting 30 times in 43 appearances, with his strike partner Paul Glatzel next with 29 in just 34 games.
Both feature heavily in the club’s top 10 goals for the U18s and U19s, but neither ended as No. 1:
Just below is Leighton Clarkson‘s stunning free-kick in the 4-3 Merseyside derby win in November, while Fidel O’Rourke and Luis Longstaff also join them in the list.
Duncan’s rocket against Man City in the FA Youth Cup final, a tap-in after fine work from Glatzel against Portsmouth, a composed lob against Wolves and a deft header in the 6-5 thriller at Middlesbrough make up the 18-year-old’s inclusions.
Both he and Glatzel, whose powerful strike against Napoli comes in at No. 3, can look forward to another big season with the Reds in 2019/20.
It is likely that they will make the step up to the under-23s on a regular basis following the departures of Rafa Camacho, Bobby Adekanye and Glen McAuley.
Liam Millar is also unlikely to stay at Liverpool beyond the end of the summer, which creates an opening for the club’s brightest young attacking prospects.
