[center}Name:Ross Barkley

Club:Everton

Nationality:English

Position: Fwd/CM

D.O.B-05-12-1993

Ross is a very versatile player as he can play up front or in a Playmaker role in CM. He plays for Everton Fc. Ross was called up for England U.16's at only 14 last season where he made his U.16 debut in a CM role against Northern Ireland in the victory shield, where England won 6-0 and Ross scored from a header. He now aged 15 captains the U.16's. from which he takes the armband from another Everton player Jose Baxter from whom he took it from Dan Gosling. Keeping it at everton eh? Ross has excelled all through his Everton career as in the Everton U.14's he scored 31 goals in 1 season. Perhaps his greatest moment was whilst captaining school team Broadgreen in the Echo Cup final, he smashed home the strikes which help beat All Saints 3-1 receiving the man of the match award and the Echo Cup from the Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez who knew Everton had signed him up.

A true driving force for club and country and is seen to be in the Gerrard mould for his late arrival's into the box and his goal scoring exploits although it depends on which position he masters if not both...

Club:Manchester United

A very talented boy indeed. a midfielder who gets plenty of goals with his shooting capabilities and who has neat finishing and composure for one so young. Still 16 he is a regular for England U.17's and for Man Utd's U.18 team.A great passer of the ball wheter short or long its mostly accurate. has a good bit of pace which sees him get over the ground well. although his tackling can be a bit lets say Wild but that can be worked on but remember Scholes was a brill player and he never knew how to tackle!!:D:D

he will of course find first team football hard to come by at United but is a player destined for the top......

He has shades of a Lampard about him but is passing is Xaviesque or scholesque well in a few years it will be!!!

CHARLIE COLLINS

0,,10420~4212068,00.jpg

Charlie Collins is a product of the up-and-coming Mk Dons Youth Academy, having joined from Spurs in January 2008 after an unsuccessful trial spell. Last season alone he made 17 starts for the Dons U18's side, and 3 sub apps, grabbing 9 goals. He has shown a great eye for goal with pace and strength to hold off opposition players. Although this thread is for English players, Charlie is infact Irish but eligible for England. He was called up for Ireland U18's squad durng a three game tournemant in France last year, but his international debut ended in tears as he was forced off the pitch in the first 10mins in the game against Serbia due to a knock to the head. He was taken to hospital as a precation for concussion. Charlie did get a second chance however for Ireland U19 side. The 17-year-old was named in Sean McCafferey's 18-strong squad for two games against Russia in Sochi. Both may have been friendly's but it was another chance to shine. Charlie came on in the 80th min for Ireland, and was unlucky not to score as Russia cleared a goal-line effort. Sadly, Ireland lost that game 2-1; if it wasnt for the defender who cleared Charlie's effort it would have ended 2-2. Just two days later Ireland lost again against a strong Russian side 4-1. Eight changes were made to ensure everyone got a chance to play, including Charlie.

0,,10420~5902696,00.jpg

These international appearances and his great performances for Dons U18's will only add to Charlie's ambition to follow fellow youth academy star Sam Baldock into the 1st team.

All comments appreciated :)

DECLAN RUDD

0,,10355~5326078,00.jpg

Date Of Birth: 16.01.1991

Nationality: English

Position: Gk

Club: Norwich City

SM Rating: Currently Not On DB.

Declan Rudd is currently second choice goalkeeper for League 1 side Norwich City, behind Stuart Nelson. Having made his way through the Canaries youth academy from the age of 9, Rudd has gone on to become a bright prospect for Norwich; and is widely tipped to one-day become 1st choice 'keeper. He was ever present during Norwich's fine run in the 2008/09 Youth Cup; in which he scored a penalty in the 4th Round against Stoke and saved three penalties in the 5th Round against Newcastle. Such performances earned him rave reviews from manager Bryan Gunn who said: "He's got an opportunity to be a top quality goalkeeper. He's just got to be focused on his job ahead and not get rushed into things. We have to try and develop him in the right way. When he comes into the first team training he doesn't look out of place. He's got a great opportunity of being a top class goalkeeper." As you can see from Gunn's praise, he does believes in Rudd's ability but wishes not to rush him. Thats why so far he has only been named as an un-used sub for the final game of the 2007/08 season. This year however his luck may change, after being given the No.13 shirt it seems Rudd will play a bigger role next season after David Marshall's sale to Cardiff; which leaves him as second-choice 'keeper. I can see him playing in perhaps the Carling Cup, and if injuries occur to Nelson then Norwich wil be forced to play him as a starter. Not bad for an 18-year old ;) Has represented England regularly at Schoolboy level and U17. Was called up to the U19 squad for the Elite Round in May but injury made him sit out all the games, he will be challenging some of Englands highest rated young 'keepers for a place in the U19 squad with the likes of Ben Amos, Jason Steele and Alex Smithies all in contention for that No.1 spot.

I predict he will be a Norwich regular from next season on-wards. He certainly has a bright future ahead of him! :D

JASON LOWE

0,,10303~3819713,00.jpg

Date Of Birth: 02.09.1991

Nationality: English

Height: N/A

Club: Blackburn

Position: Midfielder.

SM Rating: Currently not on DB.

Jason Lowe is a powerful midfielder currently maing strides into the reserve team of Premierleague side Blackburn Rovers. Having been at Blackburn from a young age, Jason has been a regular for the Academy side, featuring 25 times last season; scoring once. He is currently forcing his way into the reserve team with some brilliant displays. After being observed in the Academy, he was called up to train with the reserves and within a short amount of time he made his Reserve team debut; coming on as a sub in a 5-1 win over Hull back in October 2008. Just last February he made his first full start for the Reserves, again against Hull, and capped off his good performance with a goal. Then just two weeks later he was given his second start, once again he grabbed a goal. Towards the end of last season he made 2 starts and 4 sub apps for the Reserves, scoring two goals; also making one appearance in the Lancashire Senior Cup. Having already been assured that he will be a Reserves regular next season, Jason could well find himself in a Blackburn Carling Cup team in the not too distant future. Blackburn's U18's coach Gary Bowyer was pleased with his performances when asked to comment on the Reserve Team's progress last year:

"Jason Lowe scored two stunning goals for the Reserves, Phil Jones has progressed and gone up there, with both of them training up there full time and they are only Academy 1st Years. So from that aspect that has been a positive."

I have also managed to find one of the match reports for Blackburn's Reserves in which Lowe features and scores. Heres a quote:

"A Blackburn corner was headed goal ward by Dean Winnard, only to be blocked by a startled Hull defense. The clearance found Jason Lowe on the edge of the area. His volley struck sweet and true and flew like a missile into the top left hand corner of the Hull goalas the opposition defense could only stand and stare."

Here's the link incase your interested: http://www.rovers.co.uk/page/ReserveNews/0,,10303~1569432,00.html

It seems Jason may have a big future ahead of him at Ewood Park. :)

him no.3 for Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers' young left-back Alex Billington is quickly rising star in the Ewood Park set-up.

After agreeing a two-year scholarship deal he was quickly rewarded with an international call-up to the England Under-16 squad for the Monu Tournament.

A very good full-back, and as ever a good left-back is a rare commodity.

Alex Billington has all the attributes to progress into a fine player. He is swift, agile and tremendously strong and determined in the tackle and is not dissimilar in fashion to England's current Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce.

He provides excellent delivery from set plays and is technically very aware, being capable to play the ball well with either foot.

If he continues to progress under the tutelage of the Ewood Park coaching staff he should find himself with a swift route into their first team in the years to come.

Alex is certainly one to keep an eye on and it is believed a number of rivals Premier League clubs are also monitoring his progress closely.

A regular for England's U.16's and is seen to be a permanent fixture in t Blackburn defence in a couple of years..

He is surely gonna be a star for Blackburn eh???

Re: England's Most Talented Players Scouting Network-MadMOnty1+Greener-09

cl0000279.jpg

Michael on the left. William on the right.

THERE’s double trouble in store for Premiership teams after twin brothers from Heaton Mersey signed up to become Manchester United players.

Michael and William Keane have both signed a schoolboy scholarship with the Red Devils.

Following in the footsteps of the Neville brothers, Gary and Phil, the duo are avid United fans and have three-year contacts by the end of which they hope to have moved off the Old Trafford terraces and onto the pitch.

They have played in the same junior teams from a young age.The twins, who are pupils at St Bede’s College, Manchester, will train and play alongside their education. Both have been training with United since the age of 11 when they were spotted playing for South Manchester Juniors.

They will hopefully go on to equal or possibly excel the success of another former Bedian - the striker Neil Mellor, who was a very prolific striker for liverpool in youth and reserve games but got shipped off to preston afetr games came hard to come by.

Name: Michael Keane

Position:Centre Back

Nationality:English

D.O.B: 11-01-93

Michael is a strong tackling and quick centre half. His ability to read the play and play thats about to happen is a main reason in why he has been at United for so long. It is hard to know at such a young age wheter he is destined to the top but he is gonna be a very tidy player.

Name:William Keane

Position:Striker

Nationality:English

D.O.B:11-01-93

William on the other is a typical out and out striker with pace to burn. Smaller than his brother but this only aids his trickery as his low centre of gravity lets him "Float" around the pitch. He has a wicked shot on him although his finishing can let him down as seen for England's U.16's where he his a regular and played alongside team mates Ravel Morrison,Tom Thorpe and highly rated youngster John Cofie. A regular for England u.16's a player with a bright future ahead of him. Same as Michael it is hard to know at such a young age wheter either will make it at United.

In My opinion William is more talented but with all the attackers generally at United I believe Michael has a better chance of making the grade at United but why not both Eh??????????

Re: England's Most Talented Players Scouting Network-MadMOnty1+Greener-09

Also, found this site that mentions some of Greener's previous scouts Will Keane and Ross Barkley (Plus Berahino), featuring for England U16's:

http://manunitedyouth.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/thorpe-and-keane-help-england-to-monu-glory/ :)

Saido Berahino

Saido_Berahino_742944856.jpg

Date of Birth: 04.08.1993

Nationality: English

Height:

Position: Striker

Club: West Brom

SM Rating: Currently not on DB.

Saido is considered by many as West Broms most exciting youth prospect,

having already featured for their Reserve team side on a number on occasions; despite being only 15 years old. He particularly impressed in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal Reserves on 11th May this year, where he almost scored if not for a great penalty save from Vito Mannone. For anyone who's interested in reading the report on that game, heres the link:

http://www.arsenal.com/match-menu/3134157/reserves/arsenal-res-v-west-brom-res?tab=report

For a 15 year old, breaking into the Reserves and playing rising stars of the Arsenal academy, i.e. Sunu and Coquelin, is a great achievement; and one of which he'll be looking to build on. Having scored 23 goals for West Brom Academy last year and 30 the year before, Saido is a prolific marksman. After performing so well for West Brom, Saido recieved his 1st taste of international action, being called up for England U16's in April this year and helping them win the Monu tournement in France. His debut came in a group stage match against Russia and Saido proved his worth by scoring two goals to win the match in a thrilling 3-1 victory. He scored another goal in the group game against United Arab Emirates in a 3-0 win, and England again scored 3 goals against Ivory Coast to finish top of Group B; although Saido did not score in the final game. This fine run of wins gave England a place in the final against Germany, but after a goalless game it all came down to penalties. Although Saido missed his penalty, his heartache was short lived as England won 2-1 on penalties. Despite being disappointed with his miss, Saido was very upbeat about his performance and had this to say on his new England career;

"It was brilliant scoring goals for England. I wanted to score so badly and it was really special. I cant believe how far i've come and its a dream. Even though i missed a penalty in the final shoot-out it still felt great at the end because we all worked so hard.

Saido does have some experience in finals, having been in the Aston Manor U-15 team that lost out to C.T.C Kingshurst 2-1 in the Aston Villa Cup Final in 2008. He did play well and will take heart from his performance, if interested the link is below: (The Aston Manor game is at the bottom).

http://www.footiemag.net/bssf/news.asp?m=08-04&f=26153529.html

He also played 26 mins for England U16's in the Sky Sports Victory Shield Final that was successfully retained by England. Again here is the link:

http://www.redimps.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10440~1470695,00.html

Saido fledging career is somewhat of a rags-to-riches story, as the striker is actually a refugee that fled from his war torn home in Africa. Having been born in Burundi, Saido was surrounded by war and violence; being witness to horrific crimes. He eventually escaped from his distubing surroundings and moved to England aged 10 where he claimed Asylum. And now, 5 years on, he has gone on to play at international level for England, another great achievement for the 15 year old. Former Baggies manager Tony Mowbray talks about is excitement at his youth starlets:

"We’ve got some talented young striking options at our club in the likes of Chris Wood, ‘Pans’ (Lateef Elford-Alliyu), who is in the England set-up, and Saido (Berahino), who is in the England set-up as well."

To be recognised by the manager, now former, is a good sign that the Boss believes they have potential to make the 1st team one day. New Baggies Boss Roberto Di Matteo is a firm believer in youth, having given Sam Baldock a starting role upfront for Mk Dons last season and he returned the favour with 12 goals. So expect to see Saido featuring in the 1st team in the next year or two :D

For anyone who is interested, here is a link to England U16 games that Saido featured in:

Re: England's Most Talented Players Scouting Network-MadMOnty1+Greener-09

keanu-marsh-brown.jpg

Name:Keanu Marsh Brown

Age:17

Club: Fulham

Position: Right-Back

Date of Birth: August 10th 1992

Place of Birth: London, England

Height: 180cm

A player who played for Arsenal up until the age of 12 from where he was told he was too small and feeble to make it as a footballer especially a defender.he didn’t have to wait long to get his opportunity to prove them wrong. He joined Fulham a day later, and over the next four years grew physically and technically to earn a scholarship with the Cottagers, and leave the Gunners wondering about one that got away.

“Arsenal released me because they said I was too small, but then Mac invited me here for a day’s trial and Fulham signed me the next day,” he told fulhamfc.com.

Marsh-Brown is a right-back with elite pace. He loves to get forward and has the ability to beat a man. Due to his ease with the ball at his feet Fulham have often used him in midfield, in both defensive and attacking capacities. A regular England youth international, he is one of the brightest prospects at Fulham’s Motspur Park Academy. He makes the game look effortless with fine positional sense, athletic elegance and composure of a player much older than he is. He is an extremely versatile player who can play in a varity of positioons acroos the back 4 and in midfield....

Adrian McElligott, Fulham’s Chief Youth Scout, appears to have gotten a gem here!!!!!!!!. Arsenal will do well not to dwell on a decision they made on a player when he was far too young, because Keanu has the ability to get to the top, and realise his ambition of representing England on the top level.

Marsh-Brown has been a regular performer for Fulham’s Under-18 team in 08/09, featuring across a number of positions, quite often in midfield..He has represented England at U.17 level...

Keanu is a very ambitous player!!:D;)

“I want to get into the Development Squad and hopefully, from there, push on to the First Team as quickly as possible,” he says determinedly.

And his ultimate goal? “To play for the National team at senior level and be a regular in Fulham’s First Team as well.”

Arsenal must really be regretting letting him go now!!!!!!!!

Keanu has a younger brother who is also on the Fulham books his name is--Kyjuon Marsh-Brown

Keanu's pace is a major asset to him especially as many players need pace to suceed in the premiership. Keanu will definitely be a Premier League quality player in a few years and who's betting against him battling with the likes of Glen Johnson Wes brown and Kyle naughton soon for England Right back spot.

JAMES LAWRIE

2662590292_610a74bda5.jpg?v=0

Date Of Birth: 18.12.1990

Nationality: English

Height: 183cm

Weight: 73kg

Club: Port Vale

Position: Striker/Winger

Squad No. 21

SM Rating: 67

Early Life

James started off his career at Vale and worked his way through the youth academy, where he was a prolific striker, all the way to a starter in the first team. He also won the Midland Floodlit Youth Cup this year whilst playing for Vale's youth team.

2007/08 Season

This was the season that gave James his first taste of first team action and sent him on his way to becoming a regular for Vale. As a 17 year old, he made 6 substitute appearances in the league, scoring no goals but getting 2 shots in. He mainly featured as a late sub in all of these games but it was good experience for the young striker.

2008/09 Season

Last season cemented James' place as a regular and valuable member of Vales first team. He started 8 games for Vale and made 10 sub appearance, where he grabbed 2 goals and hit 10 shots on goal, also committing 16 fouls. He also made 1 substitute app in the FA Cup. His second goal for Vale came in the 1-1 draw against Bury in League 2 on April 6th this year, with him scoring a superb goal on the 57th minute mark to give Vale the lead, but Bennet hit back on he 68th minute to grab a draw for Bury. In a match report online, the writer of the article had this to say about Lawries performance and goal:

"He showcased his already customary excellent touch and his nose for goal with an excellent 57th-minute lob after fellow striker Louis Dodds had chased a looping through-ball.

Shakers keeper Wayne Brown won the race to the ball, but his tame headed clearance fell on a plate to the industrious Lawrie.

Without a second's thought, the Northern Ireland under-21 international caressed the ball back over Brown and into the empty, beyond back-tracking centre-back Efe Sodje.

Lawrie was tireless in his quest to create openings by feeding off Dodds and dropping deep to link up play with the middle line."

Port Vale boss Dean Glover has this say about James' performance:

"On that performance he has a good future. He's 18-years-old and he's already been called up into the Northern Ireland under-21s squad.

"The more games he gets, it will be a case of whether we can keep him here. With performances like that, there will be a few clubs looking at him."

That was said when Lawrie was still in the U-21 team for Northern Ireland, since then he has gained a cap for the Senior NI National Team.

International Career To Date:

Northern Ireland U-17's:

Made 4 apps for NI U-17's when he was just 16, bagging himself 1 goal.

This game in the 2-2 draw against Iceland after he came on as a sub. This is his playing record for the U-17's:

07.03.2007 - Vs. Netherlands - Lost 1-0. Played 90 minutes.

19.03.2007 - Vs. Iceland - Drew 2-2. Came on as a sub, scored.

21.03.2007 - Vs. Russia - Lost 3-1. Played 90 minutes.

24.03.2007 - Vs. Portugal - Lost 2-1. Played 90 minutes.

Northern Ireland U-19's:

At only 17, he made 6 appearances for the U-19's; scoring 3 times.

His three goals came against England, Belgium and Iceland. Playing record for the U-19's:

30.07.2008 - Vs. Belgium - Won 5-4 (Milk Cup). Scored, subbed out.

01.08.2008 - Vs. Chile - Won 2-1 (Milk Cup). Subbed out.

08.09.2008 - Vs. Iceland - Won 2-0 (Friendly). Scored, played 90 mins.

08.10.2008 - Vs. Serbia - Lost 3-1 (ECQ). Played 90 mins.

10.10.2008 - Vs. England - Lost 3-1 (ECQ). Scored, played 90 mins.

13.10.2008 - Vs. Albania - Won 2-1 (ECQ). Played 90 mins.

Nothern Ireland U-21's:

He was promoted to the U-21's after some great displays for the U-19's, and proved he was worth the risk by making 3 impressive appearances for them. Including a good performance in the 3-1 win over Scotland U21's. Playing record for the U-21's:

19.08.2008 - Vs. Poland - Lost 1-0. (Friendly). Played 45 mins, subbed at HT.

20.08.2008 - Vs. Ukraine - Lost 4-1. (Friendly). Played 35 mins, subbed in.

18.11.2008 - Vs. Scotland - Won 3-1. (Friendly). Played 45, subbed in HT.

Northern Ireland 'B' Team:

So far he has only appeared once for the B team, but it was impressive enough to promote him yet again. This was on the 6th May this year, in a game against Scotland B Team and got himself 59 minutes playing time.

Northern Ireland Senior Team:

He was called up for the friendly game against Italy, which they lost 3-0, he came on as a sub in the 70th minute and gained himself some very valuable experience by playing against the likes of Rossi and Gattuso.

James had this to say about his 1st appearance for the NT:

"I'm very proud for myself and for my family."

"I was nervous before kick-off, but once I sat down and watched the game I was fine. Then when I got the chance to get on I was delighted and that made it a great occasion for me."

"I came on and started on the left wing. I thought I did well when I got the ball and it was a brilliant game to be involved with."

"Playing on the pitch with people like that won't sink in for a couple of weeks."

What The Future Holds

James will be expected to stay a regular for Vale next season, if he doesnt leave the club. Everton are currently very interested, and according to recent newspaper headlines, and will make a bid to take him on trial. I could see him getting a good rise if he stays a first teamer for Vale next season.

Interview

Below is the video of James' interview after winning Port Vales Goal of The Season Award. (Although it doesnt show the goal :o ) :

Position: Striker

Club: Peterborough

Squad No.27

SM Rating: 64

Next Rating Changes: 74/75

Starting Out:

Having progressed through Basingstoke Towns' youth academy, which isnt exactly known for its academy products :P, Ben's promising career got an early launch after wowing coaches at Basingstoke's academy. But before that he featured for local sides Chineham Tigers, Basingstoke Town Colts, Hawkfield and Hatch Warren before being drafted into Basingstoke's academy and soon, their 1st team.

1st team? Why, yes please!

In 2005, at the tender age of 16, Ben made his 1st team debut for Basingstoke and impressed fans with glimpses of his technical ability. During his time in the 1st team, Ben played 27 times; scoring 3 goals. He also enjoyed 2 loan spells in his 2 years at Basing. They are as followed:

Winchester City:

This loan spell came in 2006, at just 17 years of age.

Although his stats whilst on loan there are somewhat of a mystery, i apologise for not being able to find something; i will update this if i do.

Andover:

In 2007 Ben was again sent on loan, this time to Southern League Div.1 side Andover F.C. It is here that Ben really showed his true potential. He put in some quality performances and came away from Andover with 7 goals in 13 appearances for the 1st team. Not that impressive considering the team you may be thinking? Well, actually it is impressive; its not often a 17 year old can show the strength and determination as Ben did against opponents much older than himself!

A Controversal Exit

In Autumn of 2007, Ben was controversly released from Basingstoke. After reading more about the reasons as to why this happened, it turns out the manager at the time, Francis Vines, didnt like Bens attitude in playing a new role. It seems he wanted Ben to play as target man, instead of the free-roaming, tricky striker he is. So he was shown the exit and was forced to join a club of lower stature. This is an interview given shortly after his exit:

“Ability wise, I was 100 per cent good enough at Basingstoke but Francis Vines wanted me to be a target man,” Wright said. “I wasn’t going to win headers against big, experienced centre backs at 17.”

Carshalton Athletic 2007/08 Season

Although he only endured a short time at Carshalton, he endured moderate success at the Isthmian Premier League club. Making no less than 15 appearances, Ben returned to his tricky ways; skillfully moving past defenders nearly twice his age! In his time there he scored 2 goals, not exactly a 'Thierry Henry-esque' goal ratio but his performances were solid and they earned him yet another move.

The Return To Andover; 2008

After a highly successful loan spell a year before, still a teenager, Ben re-joined Andover; albeit for a short time. Again, though he enjoyed a great time here, producing the kind of form that dazzled coaches at youth level. He made six appearances in a very short stay, but still grabbed 3 goals.

Fleet Town 2008-Continued

Another impossily short stay saw Ben turn out for Isthmian League Div.1 side Fleet town for no less than seven games. Although in this time he managed 3 goals for the semi-professional side. His performances sparked interest from higher teams and Ben became an intrigueing prospect to other non-league clubs. A ridiculously short stay, i know, but this gives him credit for his performances and it shows his good mentality. Only a strong minded person could float around clubs that often and still produce the quality of football that is expected of him.

Another Move - Hampton & Richmond 2008/09 Season:

Ben made it one step closer to his dream of league football after signing for Blue Square South side Hampton & Richmond last summer. This was a big step up for the young striker, but one that he proved he could handle and he repayed the Hampton manager, Alan Devonshire, for having faith in him and giving him his 1st full season. And boy did Ben repay him well! He made 27 appearances for the 1st team, grabbing himself 13 goals; a goal ratio of 1 goal every other game! That impressive record came in just 18 starts and 9 sub appearances. Thanks to Ben's prolific striking, Hampton finished 2nd in Blue Square South, thus winning them promotion. It was then that he gained the attention of 'big clubs'.

Interest Is High

After his terrific season for Hampton, Ben was on the wanted list of many higher-profiled clubs. The reportedly interested clubs were; Premier League side Fulham, Championship Aces Reading and League 1 highflyers Millwall and Peterborough. The fee that Hampton were commanding for Ben was thought to be a record amount, beating ex-Hampton man Leroy Griffiths' transfer for 40,000 to QPR back in 2001.

Completes Transer to Fulham.. Or Does He..

In January this year, Ben had seemingly completed his transfer to Premier League side Fulham; until mysteriously they dropped out. Everybody believed the transfer to have been completed, and it was even reported on Sky Sports News that he deal was done:

http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_4851844,00.html

But just after he completed a medical and was due to sign a contract, Fulham dropped out of the transfer; for reasons unknown even to this day. Ben said this in an interview about the matter:

“It was a bit of a mystery, I was absolutely gutted when I heard about Fulham.

Why, Hello There Fergie..

After the fiasco of the Fulham deal, League 1 highflyers (at the time) Peterborough swooped in to sign Ben just half-an-hour after the Premier Leage team withdrew their offer. After completing the deal, Ben was pleased to see a familiar face at his new club, former Basingstoke midfielder Sergio Torres. Although never playing a 1st team game with Sergio at Basing. he did play against, and alongside him in training and reserves matches an built up a strong friendship with the midfield maestro; who welcomed him to the club with a hug. Sergio has since let Ben share accomodations with him as he comes to terms with his new life in Peterborough.

Kettering, Loan Deal; Remainder of 2008/09 Season

Despite making his 'Borough debut in February, coming on as an 86th minute sub against Southend, and narrowly missing out on a place on the bench against Brighton after the game was called off; Ben was sent on loan for the remainder of last season. Kettering was the destination. He joined new team-mate Alfie Potter. During his time there, he managed 11 appearances for the 1st team, scoring 3 goals. Although 3 goals sounds quite an insignificant amount, Ben's overall play was impressive and his performances were solid.

What the 2009/10 Season Holds

After finishing up his loan-spell, Ben was re-assured that next season he will be used regularly in the 'Borough 1st team as they prepare for life in the Championship. And team-mate Aaron Mclean admitted that he was impressed with Ben's performance:

"Wright's a totally different player to myself and Craig. Technically, he's one of the best at the club.

"As he settles in fans will start to see what a good player he can be."

This is high praise indeed from established 1st teamer and prolific marksmen Mclean.

Ben Aims To Improve

He said this in a recent interview:

“My strengths are that I’m a good finisher, have a good touch and am quite skilful but I need to work on my heading, I could also do with scoring more scruffy goals and I need to improve my strength and speed.”

Attributes:

* Technically Gifted.

* Skillfull.

* Prolific.

* Great 1st Touch.

Overview

In his career, he has already amassed over 90 1st team apps, netting 33 times. An impressive tally in such a short career.

I believe he has what it takes to feature regularly for Posh next season, and with forwards Boyd and Mclean (both rated 79) and Mackail-Smith (rated 80) most likely in for a rise in the next changes, due to performances and promotion, Ben could well be in for a rise to 74/75 next time around; which could well go up to 77/78 if he becomes a 1st teamer. Even with less regular appearances, he should still get a rise to around the 71/72 mark. A decent buy for smaller teams. Definately a player for the future, make my words; he'll be in the Prem in a few years.

Ben Wright

Date of Birth: 10.08.1988

Nationality: English

Height:

Right Footed.

Position: Striker

Club: Peterborough

Squad No.27

SM Rating: 64

Next Rating Changes: 74/75

Starting Out:

Having progressed through Basingstoke Towns' youth academy, which isnt exactly known for its academy products :P, Ben's promising career got an early launch after wowing coaches at Basingstoke's academy. But before that he featured for local sides Chineham Tigers, Basingstoke Town Colts, Hawkfield and Hatch Warren before being drafted into Basingstoke's academy and soon, their 1st team.

1st team? Why, yes please!

In 2005, at the tender age of 16, Ben made his 1st team debut for Basingstoke and impressed fans with glimpses of his technical ability. During his time in the 1st team, Ben played 27 times; scoring 3 goals. He also enjoyed 2 loan spells in his 2 years at Basing. They are as followed:

Winchester City:

This loan spell came in 2006, at just 17 years of age.

Although his stats whilst on loan there are somewhat of a mystery, i apologise for not being able to find something; i will update this if i do.
