Congratulations to Bobby for earning his move to Melwood.
Bobby Duncan takes next step in Liverpool development after reward for superb start since transfer
The Liverpool youngster has scored eight in eight for the Under-18s
Highly-rated Liverpool Academy striker Bobby Duncan has taken the next step in his development after being invited to train at Melwood for the first time.
The 17-year-old frontman, who has been in prolific form since his summer move from Manchester City, had the opportunity to catch Jürgen Klopp's eye when he worked with the first-team squad on Wednesday.
With Klopp awaiting the return of his full international contingent, the Reds boss has taken the chance this week to run the rule over some of the club's emerging talent.
Duncan, who is Steven Gerrard's cousin, was selected by Academy director Alex Inglethorpe to make the trip from Kirkby to Melwood in recognition of his efforts for Barry Lewtas' under-18s so far this season.
Fellow youngsters Paul Glatzel, Adam Lewis, Dan Atherton, Matty Virtue and Liam Coyle were also involved in the first-team sessions at Melwood earlier this week.
England youth international Duncan has scored eight goals in eight domestic matches for the Reds since arriving from Man City in July. Born in Whiston, he grew up in Huyton and now lives with his family in Prescot.
Liverpool Under-18s are back in action on Saturday when they travel to Wolves (noon kick-off) in the Under-18 Premier League. Lewtas' side currently sit second in the table – just a point behind leaders Everton.https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bobby-duncan-takes-next-step-15295906
