The next instalment in our weekly Meet the Academy series, which seeks to shed further light on the aspiring talents developing their potential at the club's Kirkby youth base, turns the focus on centre-back Tom Brewitt.
A powerful presence in defence with a confident touch and acute positional sense, the local lad captains the Reds' U18s side under Neil Critchley and is gaining further experience this season via the UEFA Youth League.
In our exclusive Q&A below, Brewitt reveals the two renowned defenders that have inspired him, which former Italy international he would like to meet and his ultimate desire to wear the skipper's armband at Anfield.
