    Youngest ever FC player?

    I was just wondering who the youngest ever FC player was in England, and in the world?

    Nor real sure on this, but I remember reading somewhere that WG played 1st class cricekt age 9

    I think it was in a book on Bradman by Roland Perry, but I'm not sure.

    Google tells me: Sarwan 15 in the WI, Len Junor 15 in Australia.

    Then of course there's Hasan Raza, who allegedly made his FC debut at 14 years 215 days, 12 days before his Test debut.

    Can't find owt definitive.

    As for WG... CricketArchive has young William playing for Clifton in 1859 at the age of 11, but that wasn't a first-class game (WG, batting at 11, made 0 and 0*). It wasn't until he was 15 that he played his first FC game... and got another blob.

    EDIT: According to Cricket Archive his FC debut was 04/01/57, which makes him just 13:

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Without intending to sounds racist towards Pakistan or Pakistani people I doubt there is much truth behind a lot of the "ages" of some of the players.

    hehehe i don't know how that would be racist but anyway

    Alot of the players ages are questionable... Afridi's still 26. I think Afridi must ages once every 2 or 3 years.

    I think Mushtaq Mohammad's date of birth can be considered fairly reliable.
