Ex-Liverpool youth coach Garrity confident Woodburn will prove potential

Former Liverpool youth coach Mike Garrity is confident Ben Woodburn will prove his potential.

The Wales winger has struggled with injury over the past year and has been on-loan with Oxford United.

Garrity told Goal: "Ben has had some real bad luck," Garrity says. “I've known him and his family really well since he was a baby really. He's such a talented boy.

"I'd be wrong to say he's lost his way, but he's been unfortunate with injuries and things not working out as he expected.

“But someone like him, a great kid with a great work ethic and attitude, he'll knuckle down and kick on. He'll take things from this. He's too good a player to keep down. He's got loads of talent."
