'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Out With The Old.............

With it now seeming only a matter of time before Jo Lescott becomes an Everton player, many fans have found themselves gnashing their teeth and pounding their heads over the loss of last seasons PLayer Of The Year.

Who could possibly fill Jo's boots? Was there anyone likely to fill the void left by such a popular player?

One person already thinks he has the answer, seventeen year old Mark Little.

Mark has yet to make a first team start, although he came agonisingly close at the end of last season when he was named as sub five times.

That's not to say he didn't make an impact at the club last year. Fans voted him reserve team Player Of The Year and Glenn Hoddle has already gone on record as an admirer of the defender who is comfortable at either right back, or his more usual centre back, and has already represented England at under 18 level.



'It was a good year for my development last season playing so many games in the reserves,' he told the Birmingham Post. 'It would have been nice to have had a taste of first team action but it didn't quite happen so I'll have to try again next season.

'Being named on the bench was great, as was getting experience of travelling with the team who hopefully got used to me and accepted me!

Like most players, Mark is currently trying to make the most of what little time there is between seasons, whilst mentally preparing for what is hoped could be his breakthrough year.

'Hopefully I can come back fresh and ready for pre-season because next season could be a really big one for me.' he added.

With a combination of experience and youth such as Marks Little and Davies as well as Lewis Gobern and Daniel Jones, Wolves could yet confound their critics and achieve what their team of internationals couldnt do last year, promotion.

Out with the old, there are still a few more in the cupboard to go then.

Well, nothing wrong with giving the youngsters a chance. It's not as if the oldies have done the business in the last 2 years.
