Youngest ever player?

Post by comrade powell on Fri Nov 30, 2018 2:26 pm

The debut at Horsham on Sunday of our new 16 year old goalkeeper prompted some of us to wonder if he was the youngest ever to appear for the club in a first team senior fixture. The only other possibility suggested was Tony Gough, but it appears that Harvey may have broken the record...


Tony Gough
DoB 18.03.40
Debut 13.10.56 (Dartford)
Age 16 years 209 days

Harvey Wiles-Richards
DoB 27.05.02
Debut 25.11.18 (Horsham)
Age 16 years 182 days

Can anyone think of a younger player? I thought of Paul Gover and Brian McAuley but they were both older than 16 on debut.

(Sorry, Ashley, we are not including Somerset Cup, just league, FA Cup + Trophy)

We had a game at Histon (Frasergate) when Gary basically dragged a couple from the Academy game to be on the bench for us. Mark Branton and Tom Wood, a goalkeeper, both came on late. Branton was 17 but haven’t found out about Tom. Think it was his only appearance.
