New Liverpool U18 coach Barry Lewtas is delighted to see Nat Phillips part of the first team.
Phillips was part of his under-14s squad at Bolton Wanderers.
Lewtas said: “Nat was tall and gangly back then. He used to head everything - I've never worked with anyone who banged their head as much as Nat!
“He's a great boy, really intelligent and his dad Jimmy, who was my boss at Bolton, is a great bloke. Being from a good family helps Nat as he listens and wants to do well.
“When the boys get up to Melwood they still have so much more to do. If they don't show the capacity to improve then they aren't going to stay there."
