New Liverpool signing Gary MacKay Steven is already getting amongst the goals for the academy team.
"The Under-18s will be a very attacking team this year and there are some very talented youngsters with a lot of promise.
"The attitude of the players has been first class so far but we need to improve the defensive side of our game. Birmingham scored two goals in the final 20 minutes of the game and could have scored another one.
"You will certainly see goals going in at both ends of the pitch in the coming season and it will be entertaining to watch."
