Jay Spearing graduated to Melwood in the summer of 2007 after the best part of a decade at the Academy.
The central midfielder cum defender captained Liverpool Under-18s to the second of their successive FA Youth Cup victories in 2007.
A broken leg meant he missed most of the previous campaign, though he did feature as a late substitute when the young Reds beat Man City in the final.
In May 2007, Spearing was voted best player at the Torneo di Renate after a Liverpool under-20s side competed against the likes of AC Milan and Parma.
He then played a crucial role as Gary Ablett's second string clinched the FA Premier Reserve League title in 2007-08.
Reserves coach Gary Ablett said of the petite but combative youngster: "I think he will find that if he advances at this football club, centre-back may not be his position. His understanding and reading of the game in central midfield are there for all to see."
