Fulham’s Harvey Elliott Becomes The Youngest Player In Premier League History
Elliott, born on 4 April 2003, entered the fray as a late substitute in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves and broke the previous record set by former Fulham left-back Matthew Briggs against Middlesbrough 12 years ago.
Already linked with Chelsea and Barcelona, Elliott hasn’t even signed a professional deal with the club yet but became the youngest ever play to pull on a Fulham shirt when he came off the bench aged 15 and 174 days in a Carabao Cup game against Millwall in September.
Incredibly, Elliott wasn’t even born when Wayne Rooney played his first game for England. The lad is so young that he’s probably making Ryan Sessegnon feeling like an experienced player.
Fair play to Scott Parker for giving Elliott a taste of the big-time and an experience he’ll never forget today.
