Ben Woodburn Bio

Ben Woodburn became the youngest goalscorer in Liverpool Football Club’s history when he struck against Leeds United in an EFL Cup quarter-final tie on November 29, 2016.

On only his second senior appearance for the senior side, the forward came off the substitutes’ bench in the second-half of the Anfield fixture – and was on the pitch just 14 minutes before striking.

In doing so at the age of just 17 years, one month and 14 days, Woodburn surpassed Michael Owen’s 19-year record in becoming the youngest scorer in the Reds’ history.

He initially joined the club’s academy as an U7 player and is capable of playing anywhere across the front line.

A Wales U19 international, he made his U18s debut during the 2015-16 campaign at the age of 15, and ended the campaign as joint top scorer.

He was educated at Rainhill High School and at the start of 2016-17 Woodburn played in several first-team pre-season friendlies.

On November 8, 2016 Woodburn put pen to paper on a new long-term deal with the club.

A senior debut soon followed as a substitute against Sunderland in the same month, just three days before his historic Kop end goal against Leeds.
