Now am I imagining things or was Charlie Barnett one of the substitutes who came on to play for us against Juventus? I'm sure I read somewhere that we signed him up soon after Liverpool won the Youth Cup. Cracking journalism if I'm right :lol:

Thought so..... :lol:

 

Stats

 

The Barnett in our side was former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Barnett, who has been released by the Reds.

 

18 year-old Barnett was part of the successful FA Youth Cup side last season and scored a 30 yarder for Liverpool in the semi-final at SJP.

 

He'd been seen earlier in the week playing for our reserves in a friendly at Newcastle Benfield.
