Birmingham City’s U16 squad smashed Liverpool 8-4 to win the U16 Blades Cup final.
Goals from Remi Walker, Josh Williams and Ramello Mitchell stretched a first half lead over the Reds academy side that pulled one back before the break.
Mike Dodds’ side could even have taken a larger lead into half time had Mitchell not seen his 15th-minute penalty saved by the keeper.
The second half, though, belonged to one player as Jude Bellingham hammered home a four-goal haul with his first coming in the 56th minute.
Bellingham’s opener acted as a momentum killer for the away side, who had moved to within one of the Blues lead. The 15-year-old then swiftly set about notching his second, third and fourth goals.
Form like that will ensure he remains a part of the U23 squad, having also scored on his debut last month.
These Birmingham fans are certainly impressed, as they shared their delight at the cup success.
So Jude Bellingham looks a talent. #BCFC
