Jack Robinson

Robinson signed for Liverpool in 2002, aged just 9 years old. He developed through the youth academy and broke into the first team in 2010.

Due to his youth, inexperience and coupled with the club needing a first-team left back, he found himself seconded to Jose Enrique and the returning Fabio Aurelio, who had been injured. Robinson impressed in the fixtures he played in, but an injury to his groin and the requirement of foot surgery halted his progress.

In 2013 he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers after impressing earlier in the season but requiring more first team experience. He became a key player, but sadly the Wolves suffered relegation, dimming Robinson’s great contribution.

A loan move to Blackpool followed, with him impressing throughout, earning him a permanent move to Queens Park Rangers in 2014 – still at that stage only 21 years of age.

Robinson again found himself on loan to attain more experience, signing for Huddersfield Town, where he made the left back position his own before sadly jarring his knee and ending his season early.  The player remains with QPR to this day and providing he stays injury free, looks to have a promising career ahead.

Tom Ince

Ince signed for Liverpool as a youth player in 2008 and was handed a first-team squad number at the start of the 2010–11 season. He made his début for Liverpool on 22 September 2010 as a 106th-minute substitute for Dani Pacheco in the club’s third-round League Cup defeat to Northampton Town at Anfield.

On 1 November 2010, Ince linked up with his father Paul Ince, who was the manager of Football League One club Notts County, signing a short-term loan deal from Liverpool until January 2011.

Ince once again signed for his fathers side, this time Blackpool in 2011, in a bid to catapult his career and become as prolific as his father, Paul had before him. A strong list of performances earned the Englishman a loan move to the Premier League with Crystal Palace.

Upon refusing to re-sign a contract at Blackpool, Ince became hot property in the UK and Europe. Ultimately he signed for Hull City but failed to flourish due to defensive tactics used by his manager, Steve Bruce.

He joined Notts. Forest on loan to attain more first team appearances before being recalled by Hull early. He then joined Derby County on loan in early 2015 where he settled in quickly and has remained there, signing permanently, ever since.
