Trey Nyoni Makes Dream Start to Liverpool Career with U18s Goal
Liverpool’s U18s made it four wins from four in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory away at Blackburn on Saturday.
The Reds hit the front early as newcomer Trey Nyoni followed up his friendly heroics earlier this month with the opener at Brockhall.
The 16-year-old joined from Leicester last month and is already settling in nicely to life in Liverpool’s academy.
He made a dream start in his new surroundings by finding the net three times in a resounding 10-0 victory over Southend in pre-season, and he continued that form into his league debut.
Nyoni Opens the Scoring
Nyoni got the Reds off to a perfect start at Brockhall, finding the net after just five minutes.
The youngster latched onto a loose ball in the Blackburn box and made no mistake with his finish, giving Liverpool an early lead.
The deficit was doubled when Wellity Lucky headed home from a set-piece ball provided by Ben Trueman to see the Reds safely into the break at 2-0.
