Noticed Pitaluga in the training videos so he must still be training with us and then playing for Macc (and I guess training with them on occasion, when they do train). Probably one of the reasons why we were happy with him going to such a low level.

Yeah maybe trains with us full time and turns up for them matchday or something, good idea if that's it

Bajcetic looks good! Where has he mainly been so far, 18s or 23s? Looks a confident, composed ball playing midfielder, I like what I'm seeing.

Harvey Davies impressive with the ball at his feet too, albeit with no saves to make yet  :D

Off the top of my head Bajcetic has only played u-18 and  probs just into double figures with starts.

the official site says the u18s beat Carlisle today and that “Trent Docherty” got an assist. Presumably, they were attempting to refer to Trent (Kone-) Doherty?

Many are high on Bajcetic but he is a good 2-3 years away. Which could line up well if he does make it
Im not seeing 2-3 years away. The kid can get games right now. I get it's just one pre season game, and against a team that was clearly at a different point in their progression, but he's def not years away on that evidence.

Bajcectic looked good, will prolly get some cup games id suspect. Only turns 18 in October. Looked a lot more comfortable in the 6 than Morton does and thats not downplaying Morton. Hes been good too.

Prolly easier to transition from a CB to a 6 then from an 8 to 6.

Has Van Den Berg gone on the tour? Only saying as I didn't notice him tonight, doubt it matters anyway because it's probably a certainty he goes on loan.

Bajcetic looks a player. He was the one we rushed through before the Brexit portcullis came down eh?

Lovely “hockey assist” after the press but ooft, a switch with his right foot that flew like a rocket. Gerrard-esque.

He was an unused sub today along with Hughes, Phillips, Mabaya and Morton.

As a CB he %100 needs minutes, looks to be filling out and looked decent alongside Virg vs Palace but another loan would do him good. Still only 20

Id assume we either keep Phillips or sell him this summer, leaning towards keep as Klopp seems to rate him and dont think he likes not having 5 CB in the club anymore so cant see both of them leaving

very tidy player with potential strings to his bow. Would rather coach him at LFC than let some wretched manager destroy his confidence. He knows what he’s doing he can be the back up for Fabinho,Hendo As the anchor man. Got enough bite with strings to his bow  :-\

Good, he needs to hone his skills and get regular game time at a higher level. Hes too good for the u23 but not quite ready for PL

Blackburn last season mainly played a double pivot in midfield whether in a 5-3-2 or a 4-2-3-1 which probably better suits Morton as its a mixture of 8/6 for him

Mowbray's out now though. Bacjetic playing yesterday suggested Morton would be going on loan.

If Blackburn is a good fit for him then Morton has the potential to be a really good midfielder in the Championship. Loved how confident he was last season, remember him playing against Porto and Milan in Europe and done his part well in the League Cup and FA Cup. Decent experience for a 19 year old that, and if he impresses in the Championship you'll have better teams taking a liking to him.

We brought him in as a centre back, I think?  Been playing as a holding mid for a while now though.

Well think he is one of the reasons we are allowing Morton to go out on loan to get important match and game time experience.

And we can have him in and around the 1st team more. Even at 17 I think he will be making the step up this season to play in some cup matches etc.

I thought he was fantastic as well - can see him really growing into the midfield. What a lovely passing technique btw, strokes the ball so cleanly. You can also see him building a picture of the game in his head when he has a moment on the ball. Very excited to see more.

To my eyes that was the most striking summer debut from a kid since Gomez was first rolled out by Rodgers.

That is not how 17 year olds are supposed to play.

Harvey Davies signs a new contract extension with us.

Only times I've seen him where in these pre season run outs and I think when he was in goal for a shoot out win in the UEFA Youth League, but he's been impressive. Hoping he can get a first team game at some stage given it's been decades since we had a local keeper play for us.

Prolly what happens to most skillful technical players who get over hyped age 13-16, they hit a bit of a brick wall and dont make that next step

Personally think its not healthy at all for these young kids to get so much media attention and hype while in developmental ages

Match report from the Harriers website. Incidentally, 3 brothers in their starting XI and another on the bench must be some kind of record.

Report by Dan Harper:

A fast tempo youthful Liverpool XI came away from Aggborough with a 3-1 victory following a promising, yet slightly wasteful, showing from the home side. It was a game that also saw Ethan Freemantle add to his ever-growing pre-season tally.

The Harriers saw the best of the early chances with the best of note being on the 17th minute where a cross-ball pass to Caleb Richards led to Trialist C being put through on goal only to have his finish expertly dealt with by the young Liverpool goalkeeper Luke Hewitson.

It would be a minute later that the theme of the night would start to become apparent when Jake Cain’s shot from the edge of the area landed in the back of Tom Palmer’s net following the inability to clear. Trialist C saw the best of the chances for the home side in the first half as four minutes later Tom Palmers cross pitch pass landed to his feet only for him to skew his chance wide and then soon after have an effort that would be parried away by the Liverpool shot-stopper.

The away side doubled their lead on the stroke of half time after the ball fell to the feet of Leighton Clarkson who thunderously hit the ball into the back of North Stand net.

HT: 0 – 2

The start of the second half saw a flock of changes introduced as Liverpool introduced four new faces – Dan Corness, Harvey Blair, Fidel O’Rourke and Oakley Cannonier as Jack Bearne, Layton Stewart, Mateusz Musialowski and Bobby Clark all made way. Harriers introduced a number of new faces with Joe Foulkes, Tom Leak and Yusifu Ceesay being three of note.

The second half began to show even more promise for the home supporters to look forward ahead of the season as, despite being two goals, down there was no shortage of fight from the fresh faced looking Harriers side. This would get its reward as only four minutes from the restart when a spilled Ceesay shot, as a result of an extremely rare error from Hewitson, left the goal at Ethan Freemantle’s mercy for him to apply the finishing touch.

The momentum would however be slightly interrupted as Harriers introduced even more to the field as the clock ticked over the hour mark as Zak Brown, Nathan Lowe, Jack Tolley and Keziah Martin were introduced. This once again gave the Harriers Online sponsored Jack Tolley the chance to impress, like he has done prior in these kinds of situations including last preseason, as he saw an effort deflect over the bar for a corner.

As the game edged into the three minutes of additional time Liverpool added their cherry on the top as Oakley Cannonier applied the finish touch from close range past substitute keeper Jamie Emery who earlier had been given a chance to shine replacing Tom Palmer.

Kidderminster Harriers’ next pre-season friendly will be when we welcome a Manchester United XI to Aggborough for the second year running which is on Tuesday 26th July and many Harriers fans will look forward to hopefully just as promising performance as today.

FT: 1 – 3

Harriers: Palmer, Lissimore, Richards, Knight-Percival, Pearce, Trialist A, Owen-Evans, Byrne, Trialist C, Hemmings, Trialist B.

Subs: Emery, Martin, Brown, Leak, Lowe, Ceesay, Freemantle, Tolley, Bastable, Trialist D, Harland, Hewett.

Liverpool XI: Hewitson, Stephenson, Norris, Jonas (Quansah 55), Chambers, Clarkson (Woltman 59), Bearne (Corness 46), Clark (Blair 46), Stewart (O’Rourke 46), Cain, Musialowski (Cannonier 46).

Subs: Corness, Morana, Blair, Woltman, Quansah, Cannonier, O’Rourke.
