Player Profile

Ben Woodburn joined Liverpool's Academy at eight years old. He participated in Liverpool's pre-season matches in 2016/17 and scored in two consecutive friendlies, against Fleetwood Town and Wigan Athletic. The Welshman, who can play across the forward line, made his competitive first-team debut when he came on as substitute in the last few minutes of Liverpool''s 2-0 win over Sunderland in the Premier League on 26 November 2016. He came on as substitute in Liverpool's 2-0 win over Leeds in the League Cup three days later, scoring his team's second goal and thus becoming the youngest-ever Liverpool scorer at 17 years, 45 days old, beating Michael Owen's record who was 17 years, 143 days old when he scored his first goal, against Wimbledon in May 1997.

In 2017-18 Woodburn featured mainly for the under 23's, and was named captain for the UEFA Youth League campaign. He made only two senior appearances but did earn call ups by the Wales senior squad, scoring the only goal on his debut against Austria on 2nd September 2017. On 1 August 2018 Woodburn joined Championship side Sheffield United on loan for the season to continue his development. However this did not go as hoped and after just eight appearances, seven of them before the end of September, the spell was cut short in January 2019. Other loan options were considered but it was felt none could give him the game time needed so he instead remained at Liverpool to continue development with the Under 23's.
