20-year-old goalkeeper Harry Burgoyne made just his third Wolverhampton Wanderers appearance in their victory over Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup and it would be fair to state that this one will live long in the memory. With Carl Ikeme suspended and major doubts over veteran Andy Lonergan’s fitness, the youngster stepped up to the plate and helped Wolves earn a shock 2-1 win against the seven-time winner to reach the fifth round.
Burgoyne has featured for Wolves’ under-23 side on numerous occasions in the Football League Trophy this season; most recently in their 2-1 defeat away at Swansea City’s youth setup. At 20 years old, he still has a lot to learn but indications show that Burgoyne has the potential to mature into a very good goalkeeper. After spending the last eight years working his way up through the youth system, he is deserving of a move to greener pastures.
